Description Mark Goodman 2003-04-23 14:43:54 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.3) Gecko/20030312

Description of problem:
gcc refuses to compile the following code:

template <class T>
void test(T t) {
  int x = 0;
  const typeof(x) & t1 = x+0;

int main(int argc, char **argv) {
  return 0;

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. gcc -c test.cc -o test

Actual Results:

test.cc: In function `void test(T) [with T = int]':
test.cc:8:   instantiated from here
test.cc:4: initialization of non-const reference type `int&' from rvalue of 
   type `int'

Expected Results:  

Additional info:

This happens in gcc-3_2-branch as well.
Comment 1 Richard Henderson 2004-10-03 18:17:13 EDT
Fixed in gcc-3.3.2-1.
