is_integral Class

Tests if type is integral.

template<class Ty>
    struct is_integral;


  • Ty
    The type to query.


An instance of the type predicate holds true if the type Ty is one of the integral types, or a cv-qualified form of one of the integral types, otherwise it holds false.

An integral type is one of bool, char, unsigned char, signed char, wchar_t, short, unsigned short, int, unsigned int, long, and unsigned long. In addition, with compilers that provide them, an integral type can be one of long long, unsigned long long, __int64, and unsigned __int64.
