CORBA34 — Keyword identifiers (02)

  • Key: CORBA34-394
  • Legacy Issue Number: 1311
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Summary:
    The Objects By Value (OBV) Specification (orbos/98-01-18) introduced
    the concept of "keyword identifiers" in an effort to avoid breaking
    existing IDL specifications.It allows IDL specifications that are simply unparseable. For example:

    interface ValueBase {};
    struct S

    { ValueBase v; }

    ;

    This is ambiguous because the compiler cannot know whether the type
    of struct member "v" refers to the ValueBase interface or the
    ValueBase keyword identifier.
