CORBA24 — IDL constant declarations

  • Key: CORBA24-198
  • Legacy Issue Number: 2883
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Summary: the spec makes no statement as to the legality of the following constant
    definitions:

    const long C1 = 3.14;
    const short C2 = 1.0;
    const unsigned long C3 = -1;
    const char C4 = 10;
    const char C5 = 500;
    const long C6 = 999999;
    const short C7 = C6;
    const octet C8 = 1000;
    const short C9 = C5;
    const short C10 = 100 * 100 * 100;

    I"m sure that there are lots of others I haven"t thought of, but you get
    the idea...

    There are certainly lots of holes in the spec, with respect to both the
    legal types of the RHS and rules for overflow/underflow and mixed-type
    arithmetic. Looks like this will require a major cleanup...
