The Boost C++ Libraries

Part XI. Generic Programming

The following libraries support generic programming. The libraries can be used without detailed knowledge of template meta programming.

  • Boost.TypeTraits provides functions to check properties of types.

  • Boost.EnableIf can be used together with Boost.TypeTraits to, for example, overload functions based on their return types.

  • Boost.Fusion makes it possible to create heterogeneous containers – containers whose elements can have different types.
