BOOST_VMD_IS_TYPE — Tests whether a sequence is a VMD type.


// In header: <boost/vmd/is_type.hpp>



sequence = a possible VMD type

returns = 1 if the sequence is a VMD type, 0 if it is not.

If the sequence is not a VMD data type this macro could lead to a preprocessor error. This is because the macro uses preprocessor concatenation to determine if the sequence is an identifier once it is determined that the sequence does not start with parentheses. If the data being concatenated would lead to an invalid preprocessor token the compiler can issue a preprocessor error.
