MS VS 2010 compile failure using a droppable accumulator

Reported by: michael.rosen@… Owned by: eric_niebler
Milestone: To Be Determined Component: accumulator
Version: Boost 1.48.0 Severity: Problem
Keywords: Cc:


We are using Boost 1.48.0 and found a compilation failure on Windows using VS 2010. The project builds properly on Linux and OSX. I've provided a concise repro below. In short

  • a plain density accumulator is OK
  • a droppable density accumulator fails to compile (missing operator)
  • a droppable sum accumulator is OK.
#include <boost/accumulators/accumulators.hpp>
#include <boost/accumulators/statistics/density.hpp>
#include <boost/accumulators/statistics/stats.hpp>
#include <boost/accumulators/statistics/sum.hpp> 
using namespace boost;
using namespace accumulators;
// OK.  Plain density accumulator.  Compiles fine on VStudio 2010, boost v1.48.0
//typedef accumulator_set<double, features<tag::density> > DensityAcc;

// NG.  Droppable density accumulator causes "error C2676: binary '[' : 'const boost::accumulators::droppable_accumulator<Accumulator>' does not define this operator or a conversion to a type acceptable to the predefined operator"
typedef accumulator_set<double, features< droppable<tag::density>> > DensityAcc;

// OK.  Droppable sum accumulator seems OK.
// typedef accumulator_set<double, features< droppable<tag::sum>> > SumAcc;
int main()
  DensityAcc myAccumulator( tag::density::num_bins = 20, tag::density::cache_size = 10);
  //SumAcc myAccumulator;
  return 0;

Confirmed. This is due to a compiler bug in msvc which allows ctor template to be used as copy constructors. The problem has been worked around on trunk (commit [77417]), and will be merged to release as soon as the tests cycle. Thanks.

The second half of this patch fails to compile for me on llvm-gcc 4.2 on apple. It doesn't like the cast. Note that these files were namespaced and embedded with bcp, but it didn't appear as though that should have any impact on the patch. It's possible I'm missing something obvious though.

Ah, right. Forgot a typename. Fixed on trunk as of [77437].
