CPP13 — No portable way to create a OUT argument for a DII request

  • Key: CPP13-64
  • Legacy Issue Number: 6245
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Memorial University of Newfoundland ( Jeffrey Parsons)
  • Summary:

    Since the Any constructor from type code, void* value and boolean release flag has been eliminated, there is no longer any portable way to create an OUT argument for a DII request, without also assigning a value to it.

    I propose either a constructor from type code or changing the behavior of the type code set method to always succeed if the Any's TCKind is tk_null.
