is_pod template in C++

The std::is_pod template of C++ STL is used to check whether the type is a plain-old data(POD) type or not. It returns a boolean value showing the same.

Syntax:

template < class T > struct is_pod;

Parameter: This template contains single parameter T (Trait class) to check whether T is a pod type or not.

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

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

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

    cout << "is_pod:" << '\n';
    cout << "gfg:" << is_pod<gfg>::value << '\n';
    cout << "sam:" << is_pod<sam>::value << '\n';
    cout << "raj:" << is_pod<raj>::value << '\n';
    return 0;
}
