boost::hash<boost::shared_ptr<T>> Returns Only Two Values

Reported by: Rob Stewart <robert.stewart@…> Owned by: Peter Dimov
Milestone: To Be Determined Component: smart_ptr
Version: Boost 1.44.0 Severity: Problem
Keywords: shared_ptr hash Cc:


The attached program demonstrates that a null shared_ptr<int> produces a hash value of zero and that (ostensibly) all non-null instances produce a hash value of one.

Defining BOOST_HASH_NO_IMPLICIT_CASTS produces a static assertion failure which is better than the silent misbehavior.

The following makes things work, regardless of whether BOOST_HASH_NO_IMPLICIT_CASTS is defined:

namespace boost
   template <class T>
   hash_value(boost::shared_ptr<T> const & _ptr)
      return boost::hash_value(_ptr.get());

(In [69260]) Add hash_value for shared_ptr; prevents hash_value( bool ) from being used. Refs #5216.
