Tests if type is a pointer.

template <class Ty>  
struct is_pointer;  

Parameters

Ty
The type to query.

An instance of the type predicate holds true if the type Ty is a pointer to void, a pointer to an object, or a pointer to a function, or a cv-qualified form of one of them, otherwise it holds false. Note that is_pointer holds false if Ty is a pointer to member or a pointer to member function.
