public interface VM_TRUNCATABLE

Defines the code used to represent a truncatable value type in a typecode. A value type is truncatable if it inherits "safely" from another value type, which means it can be cast to a more general inherited type. This is one of the possible results of the type_modifier method on the TypeCode interface.
