So what ?
Is g++ trying to implement ISO C++, or a language that more or less
corresponds to the most widely deployed dialect of C++ out there
(probably Visual C++) and drop any attempt at conformance ?
Gaby quotes from the standard, and from the creator of the language.
It seems that other proficient C++ programmers in that thread agree
with him (err, I do).
I thought the days where g++ was implementing a gnu mutant of C++ were
gone. Maybe I'm wrong ?
