Die-hard developer.
Not afraid to go low-level (even down to assembly when needed during debugging).
Prefers readable code over short, complex, 'would-be-smart', unreadable code.
Musical preferences: EBM (Front 242), Synthpop (Human League, Heaven 17), Electronic stuff (Kraftwerk) and most things that don't fit mainstream (Severed Heads, Isao Tomita).
Likes 80's pinballs (Comet, High Speed)

comment When is the compiler allowed to optimize auto+brace style initialization?
This is not correct. According to the standard the compiler must first construct a temporary, then move-construct it into the variable. But the compiler is allowed to optimize this (constructing the variable directly), provided the logical effect would be the same as construction+moveconstruction, which is not the case if the moveconstructor is deleted.

Then why does it fail when the move- and copy-constructor are deleted AND private?

@CoryKramer. It's not about the default-compiler-generated move constructor. It's about when I explicitly delete the move-constructor, the code still compiles. And I think this is not allowed by the standard.

Compiler version 18.00.30723. Could this bug be introduced between 21005 and 30723?

comment Writing the same file 15 times per second fails sometimes after 50 writes. How to solve?
Harry, thanks. If indeed a virus scanner is involved, the virus scanner might still have the file open. Thanks.

Harry, do you have a reference to a technical article where I can find more information about this claim?

comment Where can I find "C/C++ Users Journal" code archive?
You can access most of the Dr. Dobbs archives at drdobbs.com/architecture-and-design/dr-dobbs-archive/240169474. I tried searching for the article number. Is this the article you are looking for: "Generic: Change the Way You Write Exception-Safe Code — Forever By Andrei Alexandrescu and Petru Marginean, December 01, 2000"?
