Description Barry Revzin 2017-05-23 21:29:55 UTC
Consider this example:

    template <class... Ts, class... Us> 
    constexpr int foo(Us... ) { return 1; }

    template <class... Us> 
    constexpr int foo(Us... ) { return 2; }
    template <class... Ts, class U>
    constexpr int foo(U ) { return 1; }

    template <class U>
    constexpr int foo(U ) { return 2; }

int main() {
    static_assert(foo(1) == 1, "!"); 

Without -DVARIADIC, the call to foo(1) is considered ambiguous and the program fails to compile. But with -DVARIADIC, the program compiles. The call should be ambiguous, since Ts... does not participate in partial ordering.

Got hit again today, while trying to write an `overload(...)` class:

    template <typename... Ts>
    struct overload : Ts...
        template <typename... TFwds>
        constexpr overload(TFwds&&... xs) 
            : Ts{FWD(xs)}...

        using Ts::operator()...;

    template <typename... TFwds>
    overload(TFwds&&...) -> overload<std::decay_t<TFwds>...>;

With the code above

    auto o = overload{[]{}};

fails to compile. See: https://godbolt.org/g/Rb3ZKt
