The BOOST_PP_TUPLE_EAT macro expands to a macro that eats a tuple.

Usage

BOOST_PP_TUPLE_EAT() (v)

or

BOOST_PP_TUPLE_EAT(size) (v)

Arguments

size
The size of the tuple to be eaten.  The argument is ignored.

Remarks

The size may be left out completely so that the macro can be invoked as BOOST_PP_TUPLE_EAT(); you may get a warning from some compilers, but the functionality will still work. If you specify a size, it will be ignored, but the warning from some compilers will not occur.
