Re: gcc-3.1 boost-1.28.0 problem
We have a patch for the problem. My diagnosis of the problem was
incorrect. The problem was that you need to add
to both mersenne_twister.hpp and shuffle_output.hpp or you don't get
the definition for std::ostream_iterator.
But this brings up another gcc bug! I had proposed a completely bogus
fix for the problem, which gcc-3.1 happily accepted!
What I had suggested is to change shuffle_output.hpp to say:
friend std::ostream& operator<<(std::ostream& os, const shuffle_output& s)
os << s._rng << " " << s.y << " ";
std::copy(s.v, s.v+k, std::ostream_iterator<s.result_type>(os, " "));
This is nonsense, as you can't refer to a type using ".", but gcc
doesn't complain at all. Stranger still, it also doesn't complain
about the still undefined std::ostream_iterator.
If it is needed I can try to put together a simple test case. Right
now all I have is a large program which I can't post.
