Wondering about this… template argument deduction succeeds for the explicitly-typed variable, fails in the auto case. (Also, it succeeds either way for an equivalently-typed unary operator template). template struct Foo { T m_t; }; template Foo operator/=(Foo foo, function fn) { return fn(foo.m_t); } void mystery() { auto foo = Foo{1}; // this works… function… Continue reading C++ Guru Question

For want of a better name I call it Structural Capture. Consider the following code: #include #include using namespace std; //————————————————————— struct Foo { template Foo(const T& t) { m_outputFunc =… Continue reading An Interesting C++ Technique
