Detailed Description

In 𝓗𝖫𝖨𝖡𝗉𝗋𝗈 an independent RTTI system is used to simplify type checks and provide readable output, e.g. in error messages.

All classes that should be handled by this RTTI have to be derived from TTypeInfo and must implement the functions "type" and "is_type" (for hierarchical type checks, e.g. test against base classes).
