BOOST_VMD_IS_ARRAY — Determines if a sequence is a Boost PP array.


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



The macro checks that the sequence is a Boost PP array. It returns 1 if it is an array, else if returns 0.

sequence = a possible Boost PP array.

returns = 1 if it is an array, else returns 0.

The macro will generate a preprocessing error if the input is in the form of an array but its first tuple element, instead of being a number, is a preprocessor token which VMD cannot parse, as in the example '(&2,(0,1))' which is a valid tuple but an invalid array.
