Yes. When I submitted the issue I was under the impression (along with
most of the BSI C++ panel) that the C++ standard references the
current C standard, which is now C11. I was told in Bristol that the
reference to ISO/IEC 9899:1999 is fine and so we only reference the
C99 library, which still includes gets(). So I think the issue I
submitted is NAD.
IMHO it wouldn't be a bad thing to remove gets() from the C++ Standard
Library even if it's technically still in C99. It is evil and should
be killed with fire. But that probably can't be handled with a DR and
so is too late for C++14.
