Implicitly Deleted Copy Constructor

ImplicitlyDeletedCopyConstructor is a phrase I had not seen before today, when the Clang compiler (CeeLanguageFamilyFrontEnd) started to emit it when I asked it to compile code which I regarded as working.

I get error messages like this for some code in FC++(FunctoidsInCpp) which works up until now:

 fcpp/list.h:79:14: error: call to implicitly-deleted copy constructor of

The point of all this is that my code wants to make a copy of a std::pair<int,int> which used to work but now it does not. Here is a reference which explains why this has found its way into the new standard for CeePlusPlus (CeePlusPlusEleven). I have not found out how to set up the copy when the template argument passed into my code could be a std::pair or something else.

I am studying the FAQ (see CeePlusPlusEleven) to see how to change my code to resolve this. The consensus seems to be that this is a problem in libstdc++ for gcc 4.4. Later versions fix this. Interesting.

Now I am experimenting with libc++, which is a version of libstdc++ which comes with Clang. After the work of installing libc++ and then updating my version of the BoostLibraries, I have got there. See CeeLanguageFamilyFrontEnd. -- JohnFletcher
