Description Qing Yang 2003-06-28 18:15:11 UTC
The details are included in the comments of the following source file:


  File: main.cpp

#include <iostream>
#include <string>
using namespace std;

struct T1 {

  string f()
    cout << "f() called\n";
    return string("1");

  string g()
    cout << "g() called\n";
    return string("2");


struct T2 {

  void add(const string& i, const string &j) 

int main()
  T2 t2;
  T1 t1;

    Consider the following line.
    I expect that t1.f() is called before t1.g(). 
    But the real execution is:
    t1.g() is called before t1.f().

    I compiled this program by:
    g++ main.cpp

    Version information:
    g++ (GCC) 3.2.2 20030222 (Red Hat Linux 3.2.2-5)


  t2.add(t1.f(), t1.g());

  return 0;
Comment 1 Andrew Pinski 2003-06-28 18:20:13 UTC
Not a bug. The ISO/ANSI C++ standard (unlike Java) allows the order within sequence points to be 
executed in any order.
