I don't think so, I thought for a moment that we could write a massively
overloaded function but then remembered arrays are separate types and
int foo[ ];
is a different type from
int bar[ ] [ ];
So we'd need a infinitely overloaded function...
I'm not sure why you could need this. I'm not sure in what kind of situation
you would get a object from somewhere yet be unaware of it's type; because
of our strong typing I don't think we ever get such objects (which can be
nice yet is related to limitations as well).
Could you illustrate the issue?
