Hello Jupp,
I don't know anything about CGAL, but I have a guess for you, where I
assume you're *not* in C++11 mode. I think I saw a similar error with my
structures and mingw4.7. Please see this example (warning: it's out of my
head, not tested):
struct X
{
static_vector<int,3> v;
};
int main()
{
X x, y;
x = y; // similar compile error
}
If you get a similar error compiling the example above, I believe I can
explain it. I looks to me like the fault of move emulation in
static_vector. I'm not sure if it's a bug in static_vector, or if that's
the cost of using Boost.Move, but I remember writing my own operator= in
struct X helped:
struct X
{
static_vector<int,3> v;
X& operator=( X const& x ) { v = x.v; return *this; }
};
I think this is needed, because due to using Boost.Move in emulation mode
static_vector defines
static_vector& operator=(static_vector&); // note: nonconst arg
so the autogenerated operaotr= in X also takes a nonconst
HTH,
Kris
