BOOST_VMD_ASSERT_IS_TYPE_D — Asserts that the sequence is a VMD type. Re-entrant version.


// In header: <boost/vmd/assert_is_type.hpp>



The macro checks that the sequence is a VMD type. If it is not a VMD type, it forces a compiler error.

The macro normally checks for a VMD type only in debug mode. However an end-user can force the macro to check or not check by defining the macro BOOST_VMD_ASSERT_DATA to 1 or 0 respectively.

d = The next available BOOST_PP_WHILE iteration.
sequence = a possible VMD type.

returns = Normally the macro returns nothing. 

          If the sequence is a VMD type, nothing is 
          For VC++, because there is no sure way of forcing  
          a compiler error from within a macro without producing
          output, if the sequence is not a VMD type the 
          macro forces a compiler error by outputting invalid C++.
          For all other compilers a compiler error is forced 
          without producing output if the sequence is not a 
          VMD type.
