remove_reference Class


The latest version of this topic can be found at remove_reference Class.

Makes non reference type from type.

template <class T>  
struct remove_reference;  
template <class T>  
using remove_reference_t = typename remove_reference<T>::type;  


The type to modify.

An instance of remove_reference<T> holds a modified-type that is T1 when T is of the form T1&, otherwise T.

#include <type_traits>   
#include <iostream>   
int main()   
    int *p = (std::remove_reference_t<int&> *)0;   
    p = p;  // to quiet "unused" warning   
    std::cout << "remove_reference_t<int&> == "   
        << typeid(*p).name() << std::endl;   
    return (0);   

remove_reference_t<int&> == int
