std is_floating_point Template in C++

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

Syntax:

template < class T > struct is_floating_point;

Parameter: This template accepts a single parameter T (Trait class) to check whether T is a floating point type.

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

  • True: if the type is a float.
  • False: if the type is a not float value.

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

    cout << "is_floating_point:" << endl;
    cout << "char: "
         << is_floating_point<char>::value
         << endl;
    cout << "int: "
         << is_floating_point<int>::value
         << endl;
    cout << "float: "
         << is_floating_point<float>::value
         << endl;
    return 0;
}
