##all c++ explicit casts #std::move included

  • — implicit casts
  • cvctor — is the most important implicit cast

=== now the explicit casts

  • — C:
  • parentheses cast
  • — C++03 added four casts
  • dynamic_cast — usable on references and pointers.
  • const_cast
  • reinterpret_cast — usually on pointers
  • static_cast
  • — c++11
  • std::move() — only for references, not pointers
  • std::forward()
  • numerous type conversions in type_traits.h
  • — boost:
  • boost::polymorphic_cast? is similar to dynamic_cast but much less popular and not essential knowledge expected of a c++ veteran
