Description

Instantiations of the class template complex<> have to be allowed for integral types, to reflect existing practice and ISO standards (LIA-III).

Suggestion

[ 2009-10-26 Proposed wording in N3002. ]

[ 2010 Pittsburgh: ]

Moved to NAD Future. Rationale added.

[2017-03-03, Kona]

SG6 suggests this issue is a new feature, not a problem with the existing standard, and should therefore be closed NAD. However, SG6 invites papers that bring the proposal up to date with the current standard.

Rationale:

There is no consensus for making this change at this time.

Proposed resolution:

Adopt N3002.
