This header defines the fundamental list operations.

Note


#define BOOST_PP_LIST_CONS(FIRST,REST)

List constructor.

Lists are build using list constructors BOOST_PP_LIST_NIL and BOOST_PP_LIST_CONS(). For example,

BOOST_PP_LIST_CONS(1,
BOOST_PP_LIST_CONS(2,
BOOST_PP_LIST_CONS(3,
BOOST_PP_LIST_CONS(4,
BOOST_PP_LIST_CONS(5,
BOOST_PP_LIST_NIL)))))

Short lists can also be build from tuples:

BOOST_PP_TUPLE_TO_LIST(5,(1,2,3,4,5))

Both of the above lists contain 5 elements: 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5.

Longer lists can be built from short lists with BOOST_PP_LIST_APPEND_D() and BOOST_PP_LIST_FOLD_RIGHT():

BOOST_PP_LIST_FOLD_RIGHT
( BOOST_PP_LIST_APPEND_D
, BOOST_PP_TUPLE_TO_LIST
  ( N
  , BOOST_PP_TUPLE_TO_LIST(M, (E11, E12, ..., E1M) )
  , BOOST_PP_TUPLE_TO_LIST(M, (E21, E22, ..., E2M) )
  , ...
  , BOOST_PP_TUPLE_TO_LIST(M, (EN1, EN2, ..., ENM) )
  )
, BOOST_PP_LIST_NIL
)

#define BOOST_PP_LIST_NIL

List nil constructor.


#define BOOST_PP_LIST_IS_CONS(LIST)

Expands to 1 if the list is not nil and 0 otherwise.


#define BOOST_PP_LIST_IS_NIL(LIST)

Expands to 1 if the list is nil and 0 otherwise.


#define BOOST_PP_LIST_FIRST(LIST)

Expands to the first element of the list. The list must not be nil.

For example,

BOOST_PP_LIST_FIRST(BOOST_PP_TUPLE_TO_LIST(5,(1,2,3,4,5)))

expands to 1.


#define BOOST_PP_LIST_REST(LIST)

Expands to a list of all but the first element of the list.

The list must not be nil.

For example,

BOOST_PP_LIST_REST(BOOST_PP_TUPLE_TO_LIST(5,(1,2,3,4,5)))

expands to the same as:

BOOST_PP_TUPLE_TO_LIST(4,(2,3,4,5))
