CPP11 — boxed types for floating point values

  • Key: CPP11-160
  • Legacy Issue Number: 2350

  • Summary:

    Summary: In ptc/98-08-03 p.20-80:

    For all the integer types, boolean, octet, char, wchar and
    enumerated types, value box classes provide.

    1. The phrase "integer types" should presumably read "integer types except for
    fixed" in view of the separate mapping for fixed type on p. 20-85. It
    is true that "integer type" can mean signed_int or unsigned_int, in
    contexts such as Corba 2.3a grammar, but the phrase here seems
    potentially ambigous.

    2. The phrase should be extended to include floating point types
    (including float, double, and long double).
