    return x;
static assert(functionAttributes!func & FA.pure_);
static assert(functionAttributes!func &;

_argptr and _arguments.
Function is a typesafe variadic function.
template FunctionTypeOf(func...) if (func.length == 1 && isCallable!func)
Get the function type from a callable object func.
Using builtin typeof on a property function yields the types of the property value, not of the property function itself. Still, FunctionTypeOf is able to obtain function types of properties.

Note Do not confuse function types with function pointer types; function types are usually used for compile-time reflection purposes.

static assert(is( typeof(C.value) == int ));
static assert(is( FunctionTypeOf!(C.value) == function ));

template SetFunctionAttributes(T, string linkage, uint attrs) if (is(T == function))
Constructs a new function or delegate type with the same basic signature as the given one, but different attributes (including linkage).
This is especially useful for adding/removing attributes to/from types in generic code, where the actual type name cannot be spelt out.
T The base type.
linkage The desired linkage of the result type.
attrs The desired FunctionAttributes of the result type.
alias ExternC(T) = SetFunctionAttributes!(T, "C", functionAttributes!T);

struct S3 { int a; immutable Object b; }
struct S4 { float[3] vals; }
static assert( hasAliasing!S1);
static assert(!hasAliasing!S2);

template hasElaborateCopyConstructor(S)
True if S or any type embedded directly in the representation of S defines an elaborate copy constructor. Elaborate copy constructors are introduced by defining this(this) for a struct.
Classes and unions never have elaborate copy constructors.

static assert(!hasElaborateCopyConstructor!S6);
static assert( hasElaborateCopyConstructor!S7);
template hasElaborateAssign(S)
True if S or any type directly embedded in the representation of S defines an elaborate assignment. Elaborate assignments are introduced by defining opAssign(typeof(this)) or opAssign(ref typeof(this)) for a struct or when there is a compiler-generated opAssign.
A type S gets compiler-generated opAssign in case it has an elaborate copy constructor or elaborate destructor.
Classes and unions never have elaborate assignments.

Note Structs with (possibly nested) postblit operator(s) will have a hidden yet elaborate compiler generated assignment operator (unless explicitly disabled).

static assert(!hasElaborateAssign!int);

static struct S  { void opAssign(S) {} }
static assert( hasElaborateAssign!S);
static assert(!hasElaborateAssign!(const(S)));

static struct S1 { void opAssign(ref S1) {} }
static struct S2 { void opAssign(int) {} }
static struct S3 { S s; }
static assert( hasElaborateAssign!S1);
static assert(!hasElaborateAssign!S2);
static assert( hasElaborateAssign!S3);
static assert( hasElaborateAssign!(S3[1]));
static assert(!hasElaborateAssign!(S3[0]));
template hasElaborateDestructor(S)
True if S or any type directly embedded in the representation of S defines an elaborate destructor. Elaborate destructors are introduced by defining ~this() for a struct.
Classes and unions never have elaborate destructors, even though classes may define ~this().
static assert(!hasElaborateDestructor!int);

static struct S1 { }
static struct S2 { ~this() {} }
static struct S3 { S2 field; }
static struct S4 { S3[1] field; }
static struct S5 { S3[] field; }
static struct S6 { S3[0] field; }
static struct S7 { @disable this(); S3 field; }
static assert(!hasElaborateDestructor!S1);

static assert( hasElaborateDestructor!(S3[1]));
static assert(!hasElaborateDestructor!(S3[0]));
static assert( hasElaborateDestructor!S4);
static assert(!hasElaborateDestructor!S5);
static assert(!hasElaborateDestructor!S6);
static assert( hasElaborateDestructor!S7);
enum auto hasMember(T, string name);
Yields true if and only if T is an aggregate that defines a symbol called name.
static assert(!hasMember!(int, "blah"));
struct S1 { int blah; }
struct S2 { int blah(){ return 0; } }
class C1 { int blah; }
class C2 { int blah(){ return 0; } }
static assert(hasMember!(S1, "blah"));
static assert(hasMember!(S2, "blah"));
static assert(hasMember!(C1, "blah"));
static assert(hasMember!(C2, "blah"));
template hasStaticMember(T, string member)
Whether the symbol represented by the string, member, exists and is a static member of T.
T Type containing symbol member.
member Name of symbol to test that resides in T.
true iff member exists and is static.
static struct S
    static void sf() {}
    void f() {}

    static int si;
    int i;

static assert( hasStaticMember!(S, "sf"));
static assert(!hasStaticMember!(S, "f"));

static assert( hasStaticMember!(S, "si"));
static assert(!hasStaticMember!(S, "i"));

static assert(!hasStaticMember!(S, "hello"));
template EnumMembers(E) if (is(E == enum))
Retrieves the members of an enumerated type enum E.
E An enumerated type. E may have duplicated values.
Static tuple composed of the members of the enumerated type E. The members are arranged in the same order as declared in E.

Note An enum can have multiple members which have the same value. If you want to use EnumMembers to e.g. generate switch cases at compile-time, you should use the std.meta.NoDuplicates template to avoid generating duplicate switch cases.

Note Returned values are strictly typed with E. Thus, the following code does not work without the explicit cast:

enum E : int { a, b, c }
int[] abc = cast(int[]) [ EnumMembers!E ];
Cast is not necessary if the type of the variable is inferred. See the example below.

Example Creating an array of enumerated values:

enum Sqrts : real
    one   = 1,
    two   = 1.41421,
    three = 1.73205,
auto sqrts = [ EnumMembers!Sqrts ];
assert(sqrts == [, Sqrts.two, Sqrts.three ]);
A generic function rank(v) in the following example uses this template for finding a member e in an enumerated type E.
// Returns i if e is the i-th enumerator of E.
size_t rank(E)(E e)
    if (is(E == enum))
    static foreach (i, member; EnumMembers!E)
        if (e == member)
            return i;
    assert(0, "Not an enum member");

enum Mode
    read  = 1,
    write = 2,
    map   = 4,
assert(rank( ) == 0);
assert(rank(Mode.write) == 1);
assert(rank(  ) == 2);

template BaseTypeTuple(A)
Get a AliasSeq of the base class and base interfaces of this class or interface. BaseTypeTuple!Object returns the empty type tuple.
import std.meta : AliasSeq;

interface I1 { }
interface I2 { }
interface I12 : I1, I2 { }
static assert(is(BaseTypeTuple!I12 == AliasSeq!(I1, I2)));

interface I3 : I1 { }

static assert(is(BaseTypeTuple!I123 == AliasSeq!(I1, I2, I3)));
template BaseClassesTuple(T) if (is(T == class))
Get a AliasSeq of all base classes of this class, in decreasing order. Interfaces are not included. BaseClassesTuple!Object yields the empty type tuple.
import std.meta : AliasSeq;

class C1 { }
class C2 : C1 { }
class C3 : C2 { }
static assert(!BaseClassesTuple!Object.length);
static assert(is(BaseClassesTuple!C1 == AliasSeq!(Object)));
static assert(is(BaseClassesTuple!C2 == AliasSeq!(C1, Object)));
static assert(is(BaseClassesTuple!C3 == AliasSeq!(C2, C1, Object)));
template InterfacesTuple(T)
Get a AliasSeq of all interfaces directly or indirectly inherited by this class or interface. Interfaces do not repeat if multiply implemented. InterfacesTuple!Object yields the empty type tuple.
template TransitiveBaseTypeTuple(T)

interface J1 {}
interface J2 {}
class B1 {}
class B2 : B1, J1, J2 {}
class B3 : B2, J1 {}
alias TL = TransitiveBaseTypeTuple!B3;
writeln(TL.length); // 5
assert(is (TL[0] == B2));
assert(is (TL[1] == B1));
assert(is (TL[2] == Object));
assert(is (TL[3] == J1));
assert(is (TL[4] == J2));

writeln(TransitiveBaseTypeTuple!Object.length); // 0
template MemberFunctionsTuple(C, string name) if (is(C == class) || is(C == interface))
Returns a tuple of non-static functions with the name name declared in the class or interface C. Covariant duplicates are shrunk into the most derived one.
interface I { I foo(); }
class B
    real foo(real v) { return v; }
class C : B, I
    override C foo() { return this; } // covariant overriding of
alias foos = MemberFunctionsTuple!(C, "foo");
static assert(foos.length == 2);
static assert(__traits(isSame, foos[0],;
static assert(__traits(isSame, foos[1],;
template TemplateOf(alias T : Base!Args, alias Base, Args...)

template TemplateOf(T : Base!Args, alias Base, Args...)

template TemplateOf(T)
Returns an alias to the template that T is an instance of. It will return void if a symbol without a template is given.
struct Foo(T, U) {}
static assert(__traits(isSame, TemplateOf!(Foo!(int, real)), Foo));
template TemplateArgsOf(alias T : Base!Args, alias Base, Args...)

template TemplateArgsOf(T : Base!Args, alias Base, Args...)
Returns a AliasSeq of the template arguments used to instantiate T.

template classInstanceAlignment(T) if (is(T == class))
Returns class instance alignment.
class A { byte b; }
class B { long l; }

// As class instance always has a hidden pointer
static assert(classInstanceAlignment!A == (void*).alignof);
static assert(classInstanceAlignment!B == long.alignof);
template CommonType(T...)
Get the type that all types can be implicitly converted to. Useful e.g. in figuring out an array type from a bunch of initializing values. Returns void if passed an empty list, or if the types have no common type.
alias X = CommonType!(int, long, short);
assert(is(X == long));
alias Y = CommonType!(int, char[], short);
assert(is(Y == void));
template ImplicitConversionTargets(T)
Returns a tuple with all possible target types of an implicit conversion of a value of type T.
Important note:
The possible targets are computed more conservatively than the D 2.005 compiler does, eliminating all dangerous conversions. For example, ImplicitConversionTargets!double does not include float.
enum bool isImplicitlyConvertible(From, To);
Is From implicitly convertible to To?
static assert( isImplicitlyConvertible!(immutable(char), char));
static assert( isImplicitlyConvertible!(const(char), char));
static assert( isImplicitlyConvertible!(char, wchar));
static assert(!isImplicitlyConvertible!(wchar, char));

static assert(!isImplicitlyConvertible!(const(ushort), ubyte));
static assert(!isImplicitlyConvertible!(const(uint), ubyte));
static assert(!isImplicitlyConvertible!(const(ulong), ubyte));

static assert(!isImplicitlyConvertible!(const(char)[], string));
static assert( isImplicitlyConvertible!(string, const(char)[]));
enum auto isAssignable(Lhs, Rhs = Lhs);
Returns true iff a value of type Rhs can be assigned to a variable of type Lhs.
isAssignable returns whether both an lvalue and rvalue can be assigned.
If you omit Rhs, isAssignable will check identity assignable of Lhs.
static assert( isAssignable!(long, int));
static assert(!isAssignable!(int, long));
static assert( isAssignable!(const(char)[], string));
static assert(!isAssignable!(string, char[]));

// int is assignable to int
static assert( isAssignable!int);

// immutable int is not assignable to immutable int
static assert(!isAssignable!(immutable int));
template isCovariantWith(F, G) if (is(F == function) && is(G == function) || is(F == delegate) && is(G == delegate) || isFunctionPointer!F && isFunctionPointer!G)
Determines whether the function type F is covariant with G, i.e., functions of the type F can override ones of the type G.
interface I { I clone(); }
interface J { J clone(); }
class C : I
    override C clone()   // covariant overriding of I.clone()
        return new C;

// C.clone() can override I.clone(), indeed.
static assert(isCovariantWith!(typeof(C.clone), typeof(I.clone)));

// C.clone() can't override J.clone(); the return type C is not implicitly
// convertible to J.
static assert(!isCovariantWith!(typeof(C.clone), typeof(J.clone)));
@property T rvalueOf(T)(inout __InoutWorkaroundStruct = __InoutWorkaroundStruct.init);

@property ref T lvalueOf(T)(inout __InoutWorkaroundStruct = __InoutWorkaroundStruct.init);
Creates an lvalue or rvalue of type T for typeof(...) and _traits(compiles, ...) purposes. No actual value is returned.

Note Trying to use returned value will result in a "Symbol Undefined" error at link time.


// Note that `f` doesn't have to be implemented
// as is isn't called.

enum auto isConvertibleToString(T);
Warning: This trait will be deprecated as soon as it is no longer used in Phobos. For a function parameter to safely accept a type that implicitly converts to string as a string, the conversion needs to happen at the callsite; otherwise, the conversion is done inside the function, and in many cases, that means that local memory is sliced (e.g. if a static array is passed to the function, then it's copied, and the resulting dynamic array will be a slice of a local variable). So, if the resulting string escapes the function, the string refers to invalid memory, and accessing it would mean accessing invalid memory. As such, the only safe way for a function to accept types that implicitly convert to string is for the implicit conversion to be done at the callsite, and that can only occur if the parameter is explicitly typed as an array, whereas using isConvertibleToString in a template constraint would result in the conversion being done inside the function. As such, isConvertibleToString is inherently unsafe and is going to be deprecated.

template getSymbolsByUDA(alias symbol, alias attribute)
Gets all symbols within symbol that have the given user-defined attribute. This is not recursive; it will not search for symbols within symbols such as nested structs or unions.
template allSameType(T...)
true iff all types T are the same.
static assert(allSameType!(int, int));
static assert(allSameType!(int, int, int));
static assert(allSameType!(float, float, float));
static assert(!allSameType!(int, double));

static assert(!allSameType!(short, int, float, double, real));
enum auto ifTestable(T, alias pred = (a) => a);
true iff the type T can be tested in an if-expression, that is if if (pred(T.init)) {} is compilable.
template isType(X...) if (X.length == 1)
Detect whether X is a type. Analogous to is(X). This is useful when used in conjunction with other templates, e.g. allSatisfy!(isType, X).
true if X is a type, false otherwise

template isFunction(X...) if (X.length == 1)
Detect whether symbol or type X is a function. This is different that finding if a symbol is callable or satisfying is(X == function), it finds specifically if the symbol represents a normal function declaration, i.e. not a delegate or a function pointer.
true if X is a function, false otherwise
See Also:
Use isFunctionPointer or isDelegate for detecting those types respectively.

Detect whether X is a final method or class.

enum auto isCopyable(S);
Determines whether the type S can be copied. If a type cannot be copied, then code such as MyStruct x; auto y = x; will fail to compile. Copying for structs can be disabled by using @disable this(this).
S The type to check.
true if S can be copied. false otherwise.
struct S1 {}                        // Fine. Can be copied
struct S2 {         this(this) {}}  // Fine. Can be copied
