BOOST_MOVABLE_BUT_NOT_COPYABLE and is_copy_constructible<T> trait

Reported by: apolukhin Owned by: igaztanaga
Milestone: Boost 1.55.0 Component: move
Version: Boost 1.54.0 Severity: Showstopper
Keywords: Cc:


There is a ticket #8802 to add is_copy_constructible<T> trait. Unfortunately, for correct work of that trait in C++03/C++98 with BOOST_MOVABLE_BUT_NOT_COPYABLE macro some changes for Boost.Move are required.

Boost.Move requires the following patch applied to to BOOST_MOVE_IMPL_NO_COPY_CTOR_OR_ASSIGN in boost/move/core.hpp :

      TYPE(TYPE &);\
      TYPE& operator=(TYPE &);\
+      public: \
+      typedef int boost_move_no_copy_constructor_or_assign; \
+      private: \

Some tests for that case already exist in boost/type_traits/is_copy_constructible.hpp, I'll uncomment them when this patch will be applied.

Motivation: Without that patch it is impossible to have a nice implementation of move_if_noexcept, that is going to be used by Boost.CircularBuffer? and may be used by other containers.

P.S.: If you wish and have no spare time, I can apply this patch and add some tests to Boost.Move

If it is possible and all the tests pass well, can this fix be merged into release branch in nearest one and a half weeks? I'm a little bit frightened that there'll be not enough time to merge and release-test TypeTraits? and CircularBufer? changes.

Ok, I'll merge it into the release branch ASAP.
