Object Lifetime

by Ilya Doroshenko

From the article:

What is an object? According to the C++ standard, part 3.9.8 under the name of [basic.types]

 An object type is a (possibly cv-qualified) type that is not a function type, not a reference type, and not a void type.

Now is int i an object? Yes.

Is void* p an object? Still yes, because pointers are types themselves, they are not references.

As we said, references are not types, but what if we declare something like struct S{ int& ref;}; would that be an object type?
