#12082 new Bugs

x3::forward_ast ambiguous call

Reported by: mikhail.strelnikov@… Owned by: Joel de Guzman
Milestone: To Be Determined Component: spirit
Version: Boost 1.60.0 Severity: Problem
Keywords: Cc:


Following code works for boost::variant but fails for boost::spirit::x3::variant with error: call of '(const c) (boost::spirit::x3::forward_ast<s1>&)' is ambiguous


#include <boost/fusion/include/define_struct_inline.hpp>
#include <boost/spirit/home/x3/support/ast/variant.hpp>
#include <boost/variant.hpp>

struct s1;

using s2 = boost::spirit::x3::variant<long, boost::spirit::x3::forward_ast<s1> >;
using s2 = boost::variant<long, boost::recursive_wrapper<s1> >;

    (s2, v1)

    (int*, v1)

struct c
    int operator()(long) const { return 0; }
    int operator()(s1) const { return 1; }
    int operator()(magic) const { return 3; }

int main()
    s2 s; s = s1{};
    return boost::apply_visitor(c(), s);

As you can see, magic class does not belong to the variant, but still causes compilation error.

Confirmed. I think it is a bug with BOOST_FUSION_DEFINE_STRUCT_INLINE. Use BOOST_FUSION_ADAPT_STRUCT as a workaround. I suggest filing a bug against fusion. Damien Buhl is maintaining the adapt/define macros. I also suggest making a minimal test case with no Spirit X3 dependencies. The main issue is about calling a function object with two (or more?) operator() which are both fusion defined structs. Please close this ticket after filing the new ticket.

But this example does not use Spirit X3 when USE_SPIRIT_X3_VARIANT macro is set to 0. If x3::variant is not used, this compiles and works as expected.

And it also compiles if you use BOOST_FUSION_ADAPT_STRUCT which leads me to think that USE_SPIRIT_X3_VARIANT is a red herring. I'll see if I can make a minimal test.

Both of ADAPT_STRUCT and _INLINE have sequence conversion ctor, thus ADAPT_STRUCT doesn't help in this case as same error .

I'm confused. That one uses BOOST_FUSION_DEFINE_STRUCT. This one compiles:

Oops, it's my bad, sorry. You are right.
