Description DrTwox 2013-11-03 01:52:11 UTC
Code example and compiler output explains all:

#include <fstream>

struct foo
    foo( std::fstream& stream )
        : stream_{ stream } // <-- Here's the problem

    std::fstream& stream_;

int main()
    std::fstream stream;
    foo f{ stream };

$ g++ --version
g++ (Ubuntu/Linaro 4.8.1-10ubuntu8) 4.8.1

$ g++ brace.cpp -std=c++11 -Wall -Wextra
brace.cpp: In constructor ‘foo::foo(std::fstream&)’:                                                                                               
brace.cpp:6:21: error: invalid initialization of non-const reference of type ‘std::fstream& {aka std::basic_fstream<char>&}’ from an rvalue of type ‘<brace-enclosed initializer list>’                                                                                                               
   : stream_{ stream } // <-- Here's the problem

I think this is http://www.open-std.org/Jtc1/sc22/wg21/docs/cwg_defects.html#1288 which makes this a duplicate of PR 50025
