Alias std.traits.ForeachType

Returns the inferred type of the loop variable when a variable of type T is iterated over using a foreach loop with a single loop variable and automatically inferred return type. Note that this may not be the same as std.range.ElementType!Range in the case of narrow strings, or if T has both opApply and a range interface.

alias ForeachType(T) = typeof((inoutintx=0){foreach(elem;T.init){returnelem;}assert(0);}());


static assert(is(ForeachType!(uint[]) == uint));
static assert(is(ForeachType!string == immutable(char)));
static assert(is(ForeachType!(string[string]) == string));
static assert(is(ForeachType!(inout(int)[]) == inout(int)));
