Re: [std-proposals] Array Index in Range-based For Loops

Hey guys do you remember this is about `for` loop? :>

And now back to modules.

Andrey said that modules are DOA and far in future before they could be used.
This intrigued me to check if my setup even could handle C++ Modules.

I found some random example from the internet:
Then downloaded it to my local setup (fresh cygwin gcc 11.3.0 on Win10).
And with a small hack to remove some godbolt quirks I manage to build
this project.

Checking https://access.redhat.com/solutions/19458 I see that the
current version
of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 9 ships with `gcc 11.2.x` and it too
should support C++ modules.

This means modules are available for the general public consumption
 (but still we need to add some boilerplate to make it work).
