5.13.7 Pointer literals [lex.nullptr]


The pointer literal is the keyword nullptr. It is a prvalue of type std​::​nullptr_­t. [Note: std​::​nullptr_­t is a distinct type that is neither a pointer type nor a pointer to member type; rather, a prvalue of this type is a null pointer constant and can be converted to a null pointer value or null member pointer value. See [conv.ptr] and [conv.mem]. end note]
