2441. Inline function parameters

Section: 9.2.8  [dcl.inline]     Status: C++20     Submitter: Kristian Stasiowski     Date: 2019-11-04

[Accepted as a DR at the November, 2019 meeting.]

According to 9.2.8 [dcl.inline] paragraph 5,

The inline specifier shall not appear on a block scope declaration.

Function parameters, however, are not block scope declarations, but they should also not be declared inline.

Proposed resolution (November, 2019):

Change 9.2.8 [dcl.inline] paragraph 5 as follows:

The inline specifier shall not appear on a block scope declaration.87 or on the declaration of a function parameter.
