Message from C, C++ talks

July 2019

— If you market yourself as a cpp compiler without talking to them, chances are, that you get sued

— You're right. The kernel is not the topic of this conversation. The topic of the conversation is that guy who doesn't know which language he should start off. Over years, people think of C as a programming language which provides basics of knowledge about *programming world*. That is, if one learnt C, there would be no problem for them (maybe tiny ones only) to jump into JavaScript or PHP, and the same with C++ - the question is just codestyle as far as I get it. There's meaning called "C-like syntax".

— This one helped me understand how it works. Thanx brother

— Np. you just need to understand, that the commitee is a loose stucture that works democratically.
anyone can attend the meetings, anyone can vote in some, but not in all issues

I don't think you would if you claim being compliant with a specific draft and not the official release

— To vote for the final std you need to be a bodymember of a country that works in the iso

— Libstdc++ https://github.com/gcc-mirror/gcc/blob/master/libstdc%2B%2B-v3/include/bits/basic_string.h#L166-L175

— Well,... we could argue about that, i am sure.

thing is: everybody may write a cpp compiler, but if you want to sell it, using a trademark, make sure to talk to the people about it before selling it ;)

— So this is diff from the one you sent earlier

— But,... if you are able to write your own std-complient compiler, you probably already know most people from the std-commitee

— Implementation clsims some level of support, users check if it's documented, file bugs etc

— Btw, if anyone wants to attend the next std meeting. its in two weeks in cologne ;)

— Because standard doesn't say "string must have these fields", it says "it must have following functionality"

— Aah now I get it.

— Can I put it like "MSVC is one of the standard CPP library" ?
