Subject: Re: [std-proposals] ACTCD19: PERFILE % of source files containing C/C++ token
From: Jake Arkinstall (jake.arkinstall_at_[hidden])
Date: 2019-09-30 15:59:40


I was hoping for

1) constexpr
2) auto
3) const
3) noexcept
4) template

But I guess we can work on that ;)

Regarding the search functionality: This is an extremely useful tool,
especially for mentoring purposes where we can show real world examples of
certain keywords. It's astounding to me that goto still has such prevalence.

I do have a feature request, but it's one that you're not going to like. If
the source files have a creation date, can this be used for identifying
trends - such as an increasing use of constexpr over time, a decreasing use
of *insert token that any suggestion of being outdated will offend at least
one portion of the community*. This is probably a little optimistic but
it'd make for interesting reading.
