CGAL 5.4.4 - Number Types
CGAL::Number_type_checker< NT1, NT2, Comparator > Class Template Reference

#include <CGAL/Number_type_checker.h>


Number_type_checker is a number type whose instances store two numbers of types NT1 and NT2.

It forwards all arithmetic operations to them, and calls the binary predicate Comparator to check the equality of the instances after each modification, as well as for each comparison.

This is a debugging tool which is useful when dealing with number types.

Template Parameters
NT1,NT2must be a model of the same algebraic structure concept and they must be FromDoubleConstructible.
Comparatormust be a model of a binary predicate taking NT1 as first argument, and NT2 as second. The Comparator parameter has a default value which is a functor calling operator== between the two arguments.
Is Model Of:

IntegralDomainWithoutDivision (same as NT1)



Some operations have a particular behavior documented here.

std::ostream & operator<< (std::ostream &out, const Number_type_checker &c)
 writes c.n1() to the ostream out.
std::istream & operator>> (std::istream &in, Number_type_checker &c)
 reads an NT1 from in, then converts it to an NT2, so a conversion from NT1 to NT2 is required here.
