3514. stacktrace should add type alias pmr::stacktrace

std::stacktrace is almost std::vector<stacktrace_entry>. This makes it an obvious candidate to define an alias for std::polymorphic_allocator.


It should be pointed out that a theoretically possible (additional) template alias

namespace pmr {
  template<class T>
    using basic_stacktrace = std::basic_stacktrace<polymorphic_allocator<T>>;

— albeit it would seem a natural choice when comparing with existing pmr typedef additions — would not provide any advantage for the user, because template parameter T would essentially need to be constrained to be equal to std::stacktrace_entry.

[2021-03-12; Reflector poll]

Set priority to 3 and status to LEWG following reflector poll.

P2301 would resolve this.

[2021-10-23 Resolved by the adoption of P2301R1 at the October 2021 plenary. Status changed: Tentatively Resolved → Resolved.]

Proposed resolution:

This wording is relative to N4878.

  1. Modify 20.21.2 [stacktrace.syn], header <stacktrace> synopsis, as indicated:

    namespace std {
      // 20.21.3 [stacktrace.entry], class stacktrace_entry
      class stacktrace_entry;
      // 20.21.4 [stacktrace.basic], class template basic_stacktrace
      template<class Allocator>
      class basic_stacktrace;
      // basic_stacktrace typedef names
      using stacktrace = basic_stacktrace<allocator<stacktrace_entry>>;
      // [stacktrace.basic.hash], hash support
      template<class T> struct hash;
      template<> struct hash<stacktrace_entry>;
      template<class Allocator> struct hash<basic_stacktrace<Allocator>>;
      namespace pmr {
        using stacktrace = std::basic_stacktrace<polymorphic_allocator<stacktrace_entry>>;
