Using C++0x features with g++

With the announcement recently that the C++0x spec has finally been finalized–I suppose it should be called C++11 at this point–I will now try to learn more of the new features that will be available.  I happy that much of what I currently use in Boost will become standardized (such as shared_ptr, threads, etc.)

Just as an FYI to myself, to play with C++0x features in g++, add the “-std=gnu++0x” compiler option.  For example, it get the following program to build:

// decltype.cpp
int f() { return 0; }

int main()
   decltype(f()) i = 8;
   return 0;

use the following on the command line:

g++ -std=gnu++0x decltype.cp
