Is it possible to determine if a structure is non-POD?

Is there a way to determine at run-time (or maybe at compile-time)
that a given class is a POD structure or it has a constructor, without
generating compiler errors?

Let's say I have a template T that takes class X as an argument, and I
want to have a clear test that tells me if X is POD or not.

Thanks,

There's something like that in Boost, search for is_pod.
