Subject implementation of Unary Traits
Date Thu, 26 Jun 2008 23:45:11 GMT
The implementation of Unary Traits (e.g., is_void) uses explicit
specialization on all four combinations of cv-qualifiers for each
trait (plain, const, volatile, and const volatile). I'm wondering
if the alternative approach of stripping the qualifiers before
"dispatching" to just one explicit specialization has been
considered. The potential advantage of this approach is fewer
declarations, smaller translation units, and thus (presumably)
faster compilation.
