IDL43 — Restrict key element type for maps

  • Key: IDL43-70
  • Status: open   Implementation work Blocked
  • Source: Remedy IT Expertise BV ( Johnny Willemsen)
  • Summary:

    Currently the key element type for maps is the same as the value element type, but that looks to be open, this allows for example a union, struct, reference, or other complex type as key type, all of them lack a comparison operator, very likely it is better to define a special map_key_type_spec just as we have for the union as switch_type_spec
