    Thumbs down Attributes for C++ data types?

    Hey all;

    Are there any Attributes for C++ types?
    I know in Ada you can use the 'ticker' and call/define them.

    Its probably a stupid question, as the only solution I can come up with is to dis-allow anything outside of the limits of the type within the code itself.

    Am I waffling?

    Geez, be a little more patient. This isn't a pizza delivery service.
    Yes, there are certain attributes like const, mutable or volatile. However, none do what you want it to do.
    Yes, there are ways around it in C++ using some template programming. If you understand it well enough, then yes, I can provide my own implementation of a ranged integer.

    Outside of your DOS world, your header file is meaningless.

    Even pizza delivery services take longer than 8 minutes (in most places).
