BOOST_VMD_ASSERT_IS_LIST_D — Asserts that the sequence is a Boost PP list. Re-entrant version.


// In header: <boost/vmd/assert_is_list.hpp>



The macro checks that the sequence is a Boost PP list. If it is not a Boost PP list, it forces a compiler error.

The macro normally checks for a Boost PP list only in debug mode. However an end-user can force the macro to check or not check by defining the macro BOOST_VMD_ASSERT_DATA to 1 or 0 respectively.

d = The next available BOOST_PP_WHILE iteration. sequence = a possible Boost PP list.

returns = Normally the macro returns nothing.

If the sequence is a Boost PP list, nothing is output.

For VC++, because there is no sure way of forcing a compiler error from within a macro without producing output, if the sequence is not a Boost PP list the macro forces a compiler error by outputting invalid C++.

For all other compilers a compiler error is forced without producing output if the parameter is not a Boost PP list.
