std::any and std::exception_ptr

{ edited by mod to shorten lines to ~70 characters. -mod }

[mistakenly posted to comp.lang.c++ before]

N3804 proposes the introduction of std::any. 

Now, C++ already has an "any"-like type, namely std::exception_ptr.
Semantically, after the introduction of std::any, exception_ptr will be
a special case of std::any, namely a semantical std::any initialized by
a caught exception. 

Wouldn't it make sense to make these two interoperate nicely? In

** std::exception_ptr should be able to be converted into a std::any,
currently, the only way of looking into an exception_ptr is re-throwing
and catching immediately (please correct me if I am wrong). 

** std::rethrow_exception should accept a std::any, throwing its
(not the std::any itself). This would permit the preparation of
a potential exception in advance and throwing it at a later point in

Best regards,

which headers to #include
Suppose I have a program which uses 'ostream' type as the parameter type for a function and 'cout' object for writing into the standard output. Following is my understanding regarding, which headers to #include for this scenario. Since the program uses 'cout' object, I have to #include <iostream> header for 'cout'. In the ISO/IEC-14882:2003 document, in page 608, in section 27.3 - Standard iostream objects, the synopsis for the header <iostream> mentions the following line(apart from other statements): extern ostream cout; From the ab...

Preconditions and semantics of std::is_constructible and std::is_assignable in N3242 (C++0x draft)
1) Preconditions for std::is_constructible<T, Args...> are specified as follows: T and all types in the parameter pack Args shall be complete types, (possibly cv-qualified) void, or arrays of unknown bound. If my understanding is correct, X const & is complete type regardless of whether X is complete type, so the following program is well- defined and shall print zero: ------------------------------------------------- #include <iostream> #include <type_traits> struct X; int main() { std::cout << (int)std::is_constructible<X cons...

Solaris Studio C++ std::cout std::string core dump under multithread environment.
Hi, Recently I meet a very strange core dump issue and I investigate this issue for long time and I have some ideas, however I have no idea it is correct or not. So I want some guys could give me some suggestions or tips, thanks a lot. The environment: Solaris X86 64bit, Solaris Studio C++ 12 (Sun Studio C++) with -mt -pthread and libCstd.so, and use libumem library. The core dump point is as follows: // ci is a int, cn and sv is a string // and I am sure ci, cn and sv is only function local variables and they // aren't shared by multithreads cout<<" ...

Thread-safety of assignment of std::exception_ptr (C++0x)
Suppose I run a couple of functions in parallel, catching an exception if either throws. If both throw, I want to catch one of the exceptions, but I don't care which one. I might try this: std::exception_ptr xp; std::async([&]{ try { doThis(); } catch(...) { xp = std::current_exception(); } }); std::async([&]{ try { doThat(); } catch(...) { xp = std::current_exception(); } }); if (xp) { // at least one of the tasks above threw } This can work only if assignment to xp (i.e., a std::exception_ptr object) is thread-safe. I see no su...

How to read an input text from keyboard by the std. lang. C?
Hello, how to read an input text from keyboard (on a console) by the standard languace C, please? I really need a tip about this question. TIA, Vinicius. What kind of input? Do you want to read a word? A sentence? A number? There's more than one way to get input from stdin, but for the most part you'll find yourself using fgets: #include <stdio.h> #include <stdlib.h> int main(void) { char buffer[BUFSIZ]; printf("Enter some text: "); fflush(stdout); if (fgets(buffer, sizeof buffer, stdin) == NULL) { fprintf(stderr, "Input error\n"); return EXIT_FAIL...

std::copy_backwards vs std::reverse_copy vs std::copy with reverse iterators
It seems all three can be used to accomplish almost identical tasks. Can someone chime in with their thoughts on their relative merits? As a concrete example, recently I was using reverse iterators to push_back on a vector in reverse order. std::vector<Elem> srcVec; std::vector<Elem> dstVec; std::copy(srcVec.rbegin(), srcVec.rend(), std::back_inserter(dstVec)); It occured to me that std::copy_backwards, and std::reverse_copy could be used to accomplish the same task, but I wasn't clear on why both alternatives are available. -- ...

Q: Convert std::string to std::wstring using std::ctype widen()
Hi All, I've done a little homework (I've read responses to similar from P.J. Plauger and Dietmar Kuehl), and wanted to verify with the Group. Below is what I am performing (Stroustrup's Appendix D recommendation won't compile in Microsoft VC++ 6.0). My question is in reference to MultiByte Character Sets. Will this code perform as expected? I understand every problem has a simple and elegant solution that is wrong. I generally use US English or Unicode, so I don't encounter a lot of issues others may see (a multibyte character using std::string). I have verified it work...

std::transform for std::map

std::terminate() and std::unexpected()
Another post that would be better placed at csc ... I'm looking for clarification on an issue in the standard. In (std::unexpected()) and (std::terminate()), the standards says: "2 Effects: Calls the unexpected_handler/terminate_handler function in effect immediately after evaluating the throw-expression, if called by the implementation, or calls the current unexpected_handler/ terminate_handler, if called by the program." Consider this snippet: ------------------------ void fn1() { std::cerr << "fn1\n"; std::terminate(); } void fn2() { std::c...

std output and std error
Hi , I have a line in script as below. METHODRES="$(ls -1 ${L_ROLLBACK_DIR}/${L_ROLLBACK_FILE}* 2>&1)" i think if file is present in above case the value of METHODRES will be 0. wat is the significance of (2>&1) i do not understand much. I think it will output std err to std output by this (2>&1) . I am not sure what will the value of METHODRES in error cases. Will any one clear my doubts . Thanks in Advance !!!
