Table of Contents
Sometimes getting and storing information about a template type at runtime
is required. For such cases a construction like
&typeid(T) or C++11 class
is usually used. And that is the point, where problems start:
std::type_indexrequire Run Time Type Info (RTTI)
typeid(T)strip const, volatile and references from type, while others don't
std::type_infoobjects across shared libraries
Boost.TypeIndex was designed to work around those issues.
This library is not accepted to Boost, it is currrently waiting for review.
