Description Florin Iucha 2001-05-06 07:28:46 EDT
Description of Problem:

Try to complile this:

---cut-here---template <int SIZE>
class B

   class P
      P(int x) : x_(x) {}
      int x() const { return x_; }
      int x_;

   P get_a_P() { return P(SIZE/2); }

class G : private B<10>

   void test();

template <int SIZE>
B<SIZE>::P the_bug(B<SIZE>::P p)
   // do nothing
   return p;

void G::test()
   P p = get_a_P();

   P q = the_bug(p);

int main()
   G g;

   return 0;


How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. try to compile

Actual Results:
templbug.cpp: In method `void G::test ()':
templbug.cpp:42: no matching function for call to `the_bug (B<10>::P 

Expected Results:
program complile

Additional Information:
If I do the template instantiation by hand (by replacing SIZE with 10), the
code compiles.
Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2001-05-09 06:38:56 EDT
The code is ill formed. See
[templ.deduct.type]/4 and [templ.deduct.type]/14 in ISO C++.
/4 sais that:
The nondeduced contexts are:

  --The nested-name-specifier of a type that was specified using a qualified-id.

/14 sais that:
template<int i, typename T>
T deduce(typename A<T>::X x,    // T is not deduced here

E.g. changing the the_bug(p) call into the_bug<10>(p) (ie. explicitely
providing the template argument because it will not be deduced) should make this
