I do not know why that is the case. Is the last comment number 6 that
you see ? I know I added a comment and it shows up as 7 when I bring up
the page. My comment is:
"#define AMACRO(x) ()
IS_EMPTY(AMACRO) is true, where of course it should be false.
This is the flaw in your presentation and it is well-known. See Paul
Mensonides post at
I give a better and less complicated version of IS_EMPTY in my variadic
data macro library in the Boost sandbox which is almost wholly based on
Paul Mensonides brilliant version ( I have to do some tweaks for VC8 )."
