CORBA24 — Preprocessing of IDL

  • Key: CORBA24-35
  • Legacy Issue Number: 2977
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Triodia Technologies Pty Ltd ( Michi Henning)
  • Summary:

    Page 3-12:

    OMG IDL preprocessing, which is based on ANSI C++ preprocessing, ..
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    The highlighted phrase is meaningless and should be deleted.

    In addition, the last para of 3.3 says that

    A complete description of the preprocessing facilities may be found
    in the The Annotated C++ Reference Manual.

    For one, the ARM is badly out of date. Second, the para implies, but doesn't
    actually say, that IDL preprocessing is exactly like C++ preprocessing.

    I would suggest to replace the last para with a definitive statement to
    say that IDL is preprocessed as described for C++ in the ISO/IEC C++ standard.
    In addition, that statement should probably be used as the lead-in to
    section 3.3.
