Subject [jira] Commented: (STDCXX-1) allow linking with other implementations
Date Fri, 14 Dec 2007 20:39:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/STDCXX-1?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12551937
] 

Martin Sebor commented on STDCXX-1:
-----------------------------------

I don't see how this could be done in a binary compatible way. To link with another implementation
of the C++ Standard Library without running into conflicts we'd need to change the names of
all the symbols that we could conflict with, i.e., everything we define out-of-line in namespace
std, which is all of iostreams, locale, and strings. So I can't imagine how this could be
done in 4.3.

> This is an enhancement request to allow object files (libraries, or executable programs)
compiled against this implementation of the C++ Standard Library to link with others compiled
against another implementation (such as GNU libstdc++ or STLport).
