remove_pointer Class


For the latest documentation on Visual Studio 2017 RC, see Visual Studio 2017 RC Documentation.

Makes type from pointer to type.

template <class T>  
struct remove_pointer;  
template <class T>  
using remove_pointer_t = typename remove_pointer<T>::type;  


The type to modify.

An instance of remove_pointer<T> holds a modified-type that is T1 when T is of the form T1*, T1* const, T1* volatile, or T1* const volatile, otherwise T.

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

remove_pointer_t<int *> == int
