1924. Definition of “literal” and kinds of literals

Section: 5.13  [lex.literal]     Status: review     Submitter: Saeed Amrollah Boyouki     Date: 2014-05-12     Liaison: editor

The term “literal” is used without definition except the implicit connection with the syntactic nonterminal literal. The relationships of English terms to syntactic nonterminals (such as “integer literal” and integer-literal) should be examined throughout 5.13 [lex.literal] and its subsections.

Notes from the November, 2016 meeting:

This issue will be handled editorially. It is being placed in "review" status until that point.
