Alias std.traits.ReturnType

Get the type of the return value from a function, a pointer to function, a delegate, a struct with an opCall, a pointer to a struct with an opCall, or a class with an opCall. Please note that ref is not part of a type, but the attribute of the function (see template functionAttributes).

alias ReturnType(alias func) = CRC.R;

Note: To reduce template instantiations, consider instead using typeof(() { return func(args); } ()) if the argument types are known or static if (is(typeof(func) Ret == return)) if only that basic test is needed.


int foo();
ReturnType!foo x;   // x is declared as int
