using namespace boost;
// Doc says: pop_front returns a vector
typedef mpl::pop_front< mpl::vector<bool,char,int> >::type v;
// Doc says: vectors have a type member equal to itself
mpl::equal< v, v::type >
fails to compile with GCC ( v::type is mpl::vector3<bool,char,int> ) and
compiles fine with other compilers.
Examples for false conclusions that could be easily drawn from the
"Oh great - I do not need mpl::identity when using v with
"Let's inherit from 'v::type' so I can save the '::type' later"
"::type always gives the numbered form of my current sequence so
I can use it with partial specialization"
I got trapped by this in two different places (and I still hope not to
be surpassingly stupid ;-). Shouldn't this behaviour be documented in
some way ?
