CPP13 — C++ ValueBox & Fixed question

  • Key: CPP13-25
  • Legacy Issue Number: 3225
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Floorboard Software ( Jonathan Biggar)
  • Summary:

    Section 1.17.7.5 states: "Value boxes for these types [including Fixed]
    map to classes that have exactly the same public interfaces as the
    underlying boxed types...".

    Does this also include overloaded operators that are defined in the
    Fixed class?

    It sure seems weird to allow some operators to work but not others:

    // IDL
    valuetype FixedVal fixed<5,2>;

    // C++
    FixedVal *fv = ...;

    ++fv; // legal?

    CORBA::Fixed f = fv * 2; // illegal?
