Section: 22.214.171.124 [ifstream.assign] Status: C++11 Submitter: Niels Dekker Opened: 2008-09-20 Last modified: 2016-02-10

View all issues with C++11 status.
It appears that we have an issue similar to issue 675 regarding the move-assignment of stream types. For example, when assigning to an std::ifstream, ifstream1, it seems preferable to close the file originally held by ifstream1:
ifstream1 = std::move(ifstream2);
The current Draft (N2723) specifies that the move-assignment of stream types like ifstream has the same effect as a swap:
Assign and swap 126.96.36.199 [ifstream.assign]basic_ifstream& operator=(basic_ifstream&& rhs);

Howard agrees with the analysis and the direction proposed.
Move to Open pending specific wording to be supplied by Howard.
[ 2009-07 Frankfurt: ]
Howard is going to write wording.
[ 2009-07-26 Howard provided wording. ]

Note: The proposed change of 188.8.131.52 [filebuf.assign] p1 depends on the resolution of LWG 1204, which allows implementations to assume that *this and rhs refer to different objects.
[ 2009 Santa Cruz: ]
Leave as Open. Too closely related to 911 to move on at this time.
[ 2010 Pittsburgh: ]
Moved to Ready for Pittsburgh.
