Description stephen.morton 1999-06-28 07:58:31 UTC
After the following declarations -
typedef void (class_y::*state_entry_proc) ();
state_entry_proc ref_proc = class_y::public_proc;

- the following code in a "class_y" member function -
void class_y::any_proc () {
   ref_proc ();

- gives a compile error (must use ->* or .* to call member

Assigned to pbrown. My eyes hurt.

Comment 2 Preston Brown 1999-07-06 14:47:59 UTC
ouch.  So do mine.  This rather convoluted bit of code will certainly
be difficult for the compiler maintainers to fix, but I do suggest you
report it to the egcs team.  Again, a bug of this magnitude is
currently beyond our abilities to repair.  All we can do is wait for
the next compiler release.
