CORBA23 — Type of fixed point quotients

  • Key: CORBA23-175
  • Legacy Issue Number: 1071
  • Status: closed

  • Summary:

    Summary: the 2.2 spec on page 3-20 defines the type of a fixed point division as:

    fixed<(d1-s1+s2) + Sinf, Sinf>

    I"m having a problem with this: The type of the result cannot be known
    at compile-time because it depends on the actual values.

    This differs from the add, subtract, and multiplication operators,
    where the result type can be determined statically.

    There is a C++ mapping problem too. The C++ mapping uses a template
    type for fixed point, where the digits and the scale are template parameters
    (i.e. must be compile-time constants).
