2153. pure-specifier in friend declaration

Section: 11.4  [class.mem]     Status: CD4     Submitter: Richard Smith     Date: 2015-06-30

[Adopted at the February, 2016 meeting.]

The current wording does not appear to ban a pure-specifier from a friend declaration.

Proposed resolution (February, 2016):

Change 11.4 [class.mem] paragraph 6 as follows:

...A pure-specifier shall be used only in the declaration of a virtual function (11.7.3 [class.virtual]) that is not a friend declaration.
