#2011 closed Feature Requests (wontfix)

Is there a way to extract the member type of a (data) member pointer?

Reported by: Daryle Walker Owned by: John Maddock
Milestone: Boost 1.36.0 Component: type_traits
Version: Boost 1.35.0 Severity: Problem
Keywords: Cc:


Can boost::remove_pointer<T> be modified to work with pointers-to-member (data), too? For instance: remove_pointer<int *> returns the int type, but so should remove_pointer<int std::div_t::*>. Or maybe a new class template should be used.

Patch for modern compilers is pretty straightforward - add four lines of code. I've uploaded it. I do not have msvs2010 or older to implement and check patch for them.

I think at this stage we need to track {std::remove_pointer}
