is_void template in C++

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

Syntax:

template < class T > struct is_void;

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

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

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

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

// C++ program to illustrate
// std::is_void template
  
#include <iostream>
#include <type_traits>
using namespace std;
  
// main program
int main()
{
    cout << boolalpha;
    cout << "is_void:"
         << '\n';
    cout << "void:"
         << is_void<void>::value
         << '\n';
    cout << "const void:"
         << is_void<const void>::value
         << '\n';
    cout << "int:"
         << is_void<int>::value
         << '\n';
    cout << "char:"
         << is_void<char>::value
         << '\n';
  
    return 0;
}
