Re: [wg14/wg21 liaison] Meeting today

From: Aaron Ballman <aaron_at_[hidden]>

Yup! I sent it out with the original meeting invite, but probably
should have resent it with my reminder email.

We will be discussing the following papers:

Make assert() macro user friendly for C and C++ (https://wg21.link/p2264)
Proposes to make the assert macro a variadic macro. The author is
looking for guidance on whether the changes are appropriate for both C
and C++, and whether there is negative implementation experience with
variadic macros that would be a concern.

secure_clear (https://wg21.link/p1315)
Proposes multiple alternative wording choices for clearing memory in a
way that cannot be optimized away as a dead store. There will be a
poll on which wording choice is preferred by the study group.

Deprecating volatile (https://wg21.link/p1152)
Proposes deprecating some uses of volatile (not the qualifier itself).
The author would like everyone to pay special attention to the
compound operation parts and to be thinking about next steps. The
following are related resources on the topic: https://wg21.link/p2139,
https://wg21.link/p1382, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KJW_DLaVXIY,
