Subject [jira] Commented: (STDCXX-1) allow linking with other implementations
Date Tue, 27 Sep 2005 01:59:48 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/STDCXX-1?page=comments#action_12330534 ] 

Lance Diduck commented on STDCXX-1:
-----------------------------------

This is a paper I wrote a couple years ago at my last job outlining some of the more conceptual
reasons that motivate this issue http://www.lancediduck.com/papers/Linker/Resolving%20Link%20Issues%20in%20C.htm


This problem is only getting worse -- for example, at my current job we routinely try to link
an "improved"  version of STLport, Xerces 2.5 and 2.6, log4cxx, some version of ACE, and a
couple of other things I've never heard of, all together in one huge makefile. Of course no
one thinks this is a good idea. But "changing the build" is out of the question -- and even
in a sane scenario, many vendors dictate the build options. 

Enabling all or portions of STDCXX code, to sit on top of whatever the current STL happens
to be, would be a huge deal. This would allow tons of developers to rely on STDCXX without
having to get everybody to coordinate on a single set of build options, or without having
to lobby an entire company (indeed the industry )  to do things your way.

compiled against this implementation of the C++ Standard Library to link with others compiled
against another implementation (such as GNU libstdc++ or STLport).
