I'm trying to compile the library with GCC 3.4. I get the following errors:
../../../boost/circular_buffer/debug.hpp: In member function `void
../../../boost/circular_buffer/debug.hpp:60: error: invalid use of undefined
type `const struct boost::cb_details::cb_iterator_base'
../../../boost/circular_buffer/debug.hpp:22: error: forward declaration of
`const struct boost::cb_details::cb_iterator_base'
The type appears to be undefined at the point of use. I know this is within a
template function, but the type is non-dependent, so it must be defined before
its use. An out-of-class definition at the end of the file seems to suffice.
../../../boost/circular_buffer/base.hpp:139: error: using typedef-name
`boost::circular_buffer<T, Alloc>::iterator' after `struct'
../../../boost/circular_buffer/base.hpp:140: error: using typedef-name
`boost::circular_buffer<T, Alloc>::const_iterator' after `struct'
Verified, and the code really does try to use a typedef-name while declaring
friendship, which is invalid.
../../../boost/circular_buffer/adaptor.hpp:369: error: dependent-name
`boost::cb_details::cb_iterator_category_traits<InputIterator>::tag' is parsed
as a non-type, but instantiation yields a type
../../../boost/circular_buffer/adaptor.hpp:369: note: say `typename
boost::cb_details::cb_iterator_category_traits<InputIterator>::tag' if a type
Just as it says. The same happens at line 412. Then in base.hpp, lines 570,
827, 953, 1105.
After fixing the above, I was able to compile & run adaptor_test and base_test
with no errors detected.
