Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

ambiguous symbol in PointerIsConvertibleFromTo.h

Other libraries like to have their own typedefs for things like uint8, etc and when they are included you get errors in lines 12 and 13 in PointerIsConvertibleFromTo.h due to ambiguous symbols.

Would it be possible to update lines 12 and 13 of engine\source\runtime\core\public\templates\PointerIsConvertibleFromTo.h in mainline


     static uint8  Test(...);
     static uint16 Test(To*);


     static FGenericPlatformTypes::uint8  Test(...);
     static FGenericPlatformTypes::uint16 Test(To*);

to prevent this ambiguity?
