The BOOST_PP_EXPR_IF macro expands to its second argument if its first argument is non-zero or expands to nothing otherwise.

Usage

BOOST_PP_EXPR_IF(cond, expr)

Arguments

cond
The condition that determines if the result is expr or nothing.  Valid values range from 0 to BOOST_PP_LIMIT_MAG.
expr
The result of the expansion if cond is non-zero.

Remarks

This macro performs a boolean conversion on its first argument.  If that conversion is unnecessary, use BOOST_PP_EXPR_IIF instead.
