See Also

T gapValueImpl(valuePointerTag);

valuePointerTag A pointer that is used as a tag to specify the value type. The pointer needs not to point to a valid object, so it is possible to use a null pointer here.


T A gap character.

This function implements gapValue. It is recommended to use gapValue rather than gapValueImpl.
