/*
This header file provides a framework for allowing compile time dispatch
based on type attributes. This is useful when writing template code.
For example, when making a copy of an array of an unknown type, it helps
to know if the type has a trivial copy constructor or not, to help decide
if a memcpy can be used.
The class template __type_traits provides a series of typedefs each of
which is either __true_type or __false_type. The argument to
__type_traits can be any type. The typedefs within this template will
attain their correct values by one of these means:
1. The general instantiation contain conservative values which work
for all types.
2. Specializations may be declared to make distinctions between types.
3. Some compilers (such as the Silicon Graphics N32 and N64 compilers)
will automatically provide the appropriate specializations for all
types.
EXAMPLE:
//Copy an array of elements which have non-trivial copy constructors
template <class _Tp> void
copy(_Tp* __source,_Tp* __destination,int __n,__false_type);
//Copy an array of elements which have trivial copy constructors. Use memcpy.
template <class _Tp> void
copy(_Tp* __source,_Tp* __destination,int __n,__true_type);
//Copy an array of any type by using the most efficient copy mechanism
template <class _Tp> inline void copy(_Tp* __source,_Tp* __destination,int __n) {
copy(__source,__destination,__n,
typename __type_traits<_Tp>::has_trivial_copy_constructor());
}

/* Do not remove this member. It informs a compiler which

__type_traits template is special. It just makes sure that
things work if an implementation is using a template
called __type_traits for something unrelated. */
/* The following restrictions should be observed for the sake of
compilers which automatically produce type specific specializations
of this class:
- You may reorder the members below if you wish
- You may remove any of the members below if you wish
- You must not rename members without making the corresponding
name change in the compiler
- Members you add will be treated like regular members unless
you add the appropriate support in the compiler. */
