You’d have thought someone would have overloaded this by now… I’ve only checked this in g++; will check with Intel’s C++ compiler and Microsoft Visual Studio later, though I’m not sure whether to expect better. What didn’t help me to find this out, of course, is g++’s totally wonderful (sarcasm) compiler error messages…
