The BOOST_PP_SEQ_REST_N macro expands to a seq of all but the first n elements of a seq.

Usage

BOOST_PP_SEQ_REST_N(n, seq)

Arguments

n
The number of elements to remove.
seq
The seq from which the elements are to be removed.

Remarks

This macro extracts n elements from the beginning of seq and returns the remainder of seq as a new seq.

It is undefined behavior if n is greater or equal to the size of the seq.
