Re: Idea: lambda capture list as ad-hoc structure or named members tuple

Purely personal opinion: the last thing C++ (ATM) needs is yet another special syntax with limited applicability...

I'd rather restart the discussion on lifting the restriction on local templates... (aka. http://www.open-std.org/jtc1/sc22/wg21/docs/papers/2020/p1988r0.html)

Subject: [std-discussion] Idea: lambda capture list as ad-hoc structure or named members tuple


So why not have something like a capture list of a lambda with outside access of its named auto typed members?

A kind of structured binding with initializing expressions for each member?

auto f()
auto adhocstruct=[m=expression_m, n=expression_n];


return adhocstruct;

auto sometransform()
return [result=expression, tolerance=expression, moved=std::move(movedfrom)];

decltype(sometransform()) sometransformresultvalue;

Using tuples for that has a major drawback of not being able to give descriptive names for members.
Using predefined structs has three major drawbacks: more typing/code (DRY), less locality and no auto member type deduction.
