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"

[Feature Request] Replace C++ Macros with Attributes

While the information is important behind macros, the delivery system itself leaves wishing.

C++ has had attributes for a while, but ability to ignore non-standart attributes will most likely accepted in C++17 . Currently GCC and Clang(3.9) support it and MSVC will add it most likely in their next version (maybe through update).

With current macros you can´t take proper advantage of Visual Studio toolset. I can imagine, similar problems for XCode. I think every C++ dev has gone though this pain at some point by setting up visual studio to count in those macros.

I ask you apply it when both: official release of C++17 specification and MSVC support has come out.

Proposed and adopted paper on wording for next C++ specification: http://www.open-std.org/jtc1/sc22/wg21/docs/papers/2016/p0283r2.html
