static_cast operator

static_cast operator Explicit cast operator

postfix-expr := static_cast < type-id > ( expression )

The static_cast operator performs type conversions from one static type to another. It cannot cast away const or volatile qualifiers. A static cast can invoke built-in type promotions or conversions or user-defined type conversions with type conversion operators or constructors (including explicit constructors).


char c;

if (isalpha(static_cast<unsigned char>(c))
