#7437 closed Bugs (fixed)

No hash function for enums in Boost 1.51

Reported by: Steven Barbaglia <steven.barbaglia@…> Owned by: danieljames
Milestone: Boost 1.52.0 Component: hash
Version: Boost 1.51.0 Severity: Problem
Keywords: Cc:


Using enums as keys in maps has become problematic in Boost 1.51. The following code compiles with Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 under Boost 1.50, but not Boost 1.51:

#include <boost/unordered_map.hpp>

class MyClass
    enum eMyEnum

typedef boost::unordered_map<MyClass::eMyEnum,std::string> MyMap;

int main(int argc, char* argv[])
    MyMap m;
    MyMap::value_type v(MyClass::red,"apples");

    return 0;

An extract from the error report is:

boost\functional\hash\extensions.hpp(257): error C2665: 'boost::hash_value' : none of the 2 overloads could convert all the argument types
boost\functional\hash\hash.hpp(115): could be 'size_t boost::hash_value(std::type_index)'
boost\functional\hash\extensions.hpp(160): or       'size_t boost::hash_value(const std::tr1::tuple<> &)'
