CPP13 — Generic extraction of Fixed

  • Key: CPP13-8
  • Legacy Issue Number: 1984
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Summary:
    The C++ mapping does not permit extraction of a Fixed from an Any
    in a generic way – I must always specify matching digits and scale in
    order to call Any::to_fixed(). This is inconvenient if an application
    wants to deal with Fixed values generically (because Fixed is a generic
    type in C++ anyway).

    Proposal:

    Add an overloaded >>= operator for extraction of Fixed from an Any.
    The operator sets the Fixed value to whatever scale and digits
    are present in the type code.

    Cheers,

    Michi.
