Addresses: arrays.ts

99 [arrays.ts::dynarray.overview] p2 says:

"Unless otherwise specified, all dynarray operations have the same requirements and semantics as specified in 99 [arrays.ts::container.requirements]."

Some differences from 99 [arrays.ts::container.requirements] are not explicitly specified, including at least the lack of a default constructor, copy assignment and swap member.

The wording could be similar to 26.3.7.1 [array.overview] which says "An array satisfies all of the requirements of a container and of a reversible container (99 [arrays.ts::container.requirements]), except that a default constructed array object is not empty and that swap does not have constant complexity."

Move to Deferred. This feature will ship after C++14 and should be revisited then.

This issue has been reopened as arrays-ts.

Move to Ready

[2014/11 Urbana]

Held at Ready status, pending clarification of Arrays TS

Proposed resolution:

  1. Add to 99 [arrays.ts::dynarray.overview] p2:

    -2- A dynarray satisfies all of the requirements of a container and of a reversible container (99 [arrays.ts::container.requirements]), except for default construction, assignment and swap. Unless otherwise specified, all dynarray operations have the same requirements and semantics as specified in 99 [arrays.ts::container.requirements].
