Performs type-safe access to the contained object.

For (1-3), the program is ill-formed if ValueType is not a reference and std::is_copy_constructible<ValueType>::value is false.

[edit] Parameters

operand - target any object

[edit] Return value

1) Returns *any_cast<std::add_const_t<std::remove_reference_t<ValueType>>>(&operand).
2-3) Returns *any_cast<std::remove_reference_t<ValueType>>(&operand).
4-5) If operand is not a null pointer, and the typeid of the requested ValueType matches that of the contents of operand, a pointer to the value contained by operand, otherwise a null pointer.

[edit] Exceptions

1-3) Throws bad_any_cast if the typeid of the requested ValueType does not match that of the contents of operand.
