21.3 Metaprogramming and type traits [type.traits]

21.3.8 Transformations between types [meta.trans] Array modifications [meta.trans.arr]

Table 53: Array modifications [tab:meta.trans.arr]
template<class T>
struct remove_extent;
If T is a type “array of U”, the member typedef type denotes U, otherwise T.
[Note 1: 
For multidimensional arrays, only the first array dimension is removed.
For a type “array of const U”, the resulting type is const U.
— end note]
template<class T>
struct remove_all_extents;
If T is “multidimensional array of U”, the resulting member typedef type denotes U, otherwise T.
[Example 1: // the following assertions hold: assert((is_same_v<remove_extent_t<int>, int>)); assert((is_same_v<remove_extent_t<int[2]>, int>)); assert((is_same_v<remove_extent_t<int[2][3]>, int[3]>)); assert((is_same_v<remove_extent_t<int[][3]>, int[3]>)); — end example]
[Example 2: // the following assertions hold: assert((is_same_v<remove_all_extents_t<int>, int>)); assert((is_same_v<remove_all_extents_t<int[2]>, int>)); assert((is_same_v<remove_all_extents_t<int[2][3]>, int>)); assert((is_same_v<remove_all_extents_t<int[][3]>, int>)); — end example]
