Ticket #4132 (closed Patches: fixed)

Use of "id" as a variable name makes Boost unusable in Objective-C++

Reported by: stokestack@… Owned by: johnmaddock
Milestone: Boost 1.43.0 Component: regex
Version: Boost 1.42.0 Severity: Problem
Keywords: Objective-C++ Cc:


I included a C++ object in an Objective-C++ file and compilation failed with "Expected primary-expression before..." It turns out that two relevant files were using "id" as a variable name. "id" is a keyword in Objective-C++.

Changing the variable name to "idx" (which appears to be more descriptive of its use anyway) eliminated the error.

Patch attached.
