Class greg_year

boost::gregorian::greg_year — Represent a year (range 1400 - 9999)


// In header: <boost/date_time/gregorian/greg_year.hpp>

class greg_year : public greg_year_rep {
  // construct/copy/destruct

  // public member functions
  BOOST_CXX14_CONSTEXPR operator value_type() const;


This small class allows for simple conversion an integer value into a year for the gregorian calendar. This currently only allows a range of 1400 to 9999. Both ends of the range are a bit arbitrary at the moment, but they are the limits of current testing of the library. As such they may be increased in the future.
