Straight Declarations C++ library released

Historically C++ declaration syntax has been a total mess. Spiral rule and operators reused to declare stuff can make declarations unreadable to the point that people create special demangling services. With the recent introduction of rvalue- and universal- references situation became even worse.

C++ declarations reading meme.

Straight Declarations is a header-only C++11 library providing alias templates to declare arrays, pointers and references with uniform syntax and clear semantics. This library makes it possible to write declarations with left-to-right reading order and eliminates reuse of *, &, [ and ] symbols.
