(ranges TS)

The concept ConvertibleTo<From, To> specifies that an expression of the type and value category specified by From can be implicitly and explicitly converted to the type To, and the two forms of conversion are equivalent.

Specifically, ConvertibleTo<From, To> is satisfied only if, given the invented function To test(From (&f)()) { return f(); } and a function F of type From () such that the expression F() is equality-preserving,

  • Either
    • To is neither an object type nor a reference-to-object type, or
    • static_cast<To>(f()) is equal to test(f), and
  • One of the following is true:
    • From is not a reference-to-object type, or
    • From is an rvalue reference to a non-const-qualified type, and the resulting state of the object referenced by f() is valid but unspecified after either expression above; or
    • the object referred to by f() is not modified by either expression above.

There need not be any subsumption relationship between ConvertibleTo<From, To> and std::is_convertible<From, To>::value.
