Improper order of operations in function causing infinite recursive call

Reported by: rtrieu@… Owned by: chris_kohlhoff
Milestone: To Be Determined Component: asio
Version: Boost 1.55.0 Severity: Problem
Keywords: Cc: gromer@…


In also/ip/resolver_query_base.hpp, the enum flags has an overloaded function for the ~ operator. Here is the code below:

friend flags operator~(flags x) {

return static_cast<flags>(static_cast<unsigned int>(~x));


Note that the ~ in the function is applied to x, not the static_cast. This will call the overloaded operator again. The proper fix is:

friend flags operator~(flags x) {

return static_cast<flags>(~static_cast<unsigned int>(x));


which uses the builtin ~ operator for unsigned int. This was detected by Clang's new warning -Winfinite-recursion.
