is_final template in C++14

The std::is_final template of C++ STL is used to check whether the type is a final or not.

Syntax:

template < class T > struct is_final;

Parameter: This template contains single parameter T (Trait class) to check whether T is a final type.



Return Value: This template returns a boolean value as shown below:

  • True: if the type is a final.
  • False: if the type is a non-final.

Below programs illustrate the std::is_final template in C++ STL:

Note: Please select C++14 in the online IDE to run the code.
