is_lvalue_reference Template in C++

The std::is_lvalue_reference template of C++ STL is used to check whether the type is a lvalue reference type or not. It returns a boolean value showing the same.

Syntax:

template <class T > struct is_lvalue_reference;

Template Parameter: This template accepts a single parameter T (Trait class) to check whether T is a lvalue reference type or not.



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

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

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

    cout << "gfg&&: "
         << is_lvalue_reference<gfg&&>::value
         << '\n';
  
    return 0;
