Subject [jira] Commented: (STDCXX-605) [IBM XLC++] errors compiling dynatype.cpp
Date Fri, 07 Dec 2007 01:01:43 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/STDCXX-605?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12549268
] 

Martin Sebor commented on STDCXX-605:
-------------------------------------

I don't think the patch is appropriate. The comment above the function says: "retrieve a const
reference to the concrete type from an instance of dynatype throws std::bad_cast if the types
don't match exactly." It seems that changing the return type from const T& to T might
change the semantics of the function in some cases by introducing a conversion where one wouldn't
otherwise be allowed. It's also inefficient. I realize this is just an example, but it's an
example of a generic container that should be efficient.

Btw., do we have an External issue for this bug (and have we opened a PMR with IBM for it)?
I'd like to link them together so we can track the vendor's progress on their bug without
cluttering this issue.
