Subject: Re: [Tooling] [ std::embed ] Getting Data into C++ at Build Time
Date: 2018-05-14 12:21:48
Thank you for sharing this proposal. The proposal really fills a void.
As you already mentioned in the proposal we should strive towards a unified world instead of a fragmented one. Therefore this proposal should be accompanied by a proposal for WG15 for unified compile/build description. Iâve been thinking about dependency management lately (see http://www.klabbers.nl/c/dependency-management-for-c/ <http://www.klabbers.nl/c/dependency-management-for-c/>). Part of my current thinking is also define unified compile/build flags.

I wrote a paper about getting resource data from files into C++ in a cross-platform, compile-time way, under the name "std::embed" -- http://www.open-std.org/jtc1/sc22/wg21/docs/papers/2018/p1040r0.html <http://www.open-std.org/jtc1/sc22/wg21/docs/papers/2018/p1040r0.html>.

It seems like something that would be of benefit to this Study Group, as it can replace many build steps currently used today to handle the same sort of issue.
