What are the four methods of type conversion in C++?

There are four ways of type conversion in C++.

  1. Static cast is used to explicitly convert one data type to another data type, including conversions between basic data types and classes.
  2. Dynamic_cast: mainly used for polymorphic type conversions in a class hierarchy, can only be used with class pointers or references that contain virtual functions.
  3. Const cast: a method used to remove the const or volatile attributes from an object, allowing it to be modified.
  4. reinterpret_cast: Used to convert a pointer or reference into another pointer or reference of a different type, typically used for type conversions between low-level operations or interfaces.
