Compiling Boost.TypeTraits tests using VC++ RTL

If I compile Boost type traits on Windows using VC++ RTL I get:

It seems the reality here is that clang-cl just cannot compile this
file today. The work-around for that situation is to compile with the
/fallback option [1]. I also just published a blog post about this
[2].

Hopefully that helps.

Even with /fallback specified I am still seeing:

error(clang): cannot mangle RTTI descriptors for type 'codecvt' yet
error(clang): cannot mangle the name of type 'codecvt' into RTTI descriptors yet
error(clang): cannot mangle RTTI descriptors for type 'codecvt_base' yet

BTW I see a great deal of:

note(clang): expanded from macro 'XXX'

in the output when macros are bring expanded. While this may be ordinarily helpful for macro expansion I would like to turn this off by default. How do I do that ?

Yes, in /fallback mode, clang-cl will still print the errors it

I don't think Clang has an option to turn these off (others on this
list please correct me if I'm wrong), but there is an option to limit
the length of the backtrace: -fmacro-backtrace-limit. This is not
currently exposed in clang-cl though :confused:

Thanks,

You are right, and I did not notice it.

BTW I see a great deal of:

note(clang): expanded from macro 'XXX'

in the output when macros are bring expanded. While this may be ordinarily
helpful for macro expansion I would like to turn this off by default. How do
I do that ?

I don't think Clang has an option to turn these off (others on this
list please correct me if I'm wrong), but there is an option to limit
the length of the backtrace: -fmacro-backtrace-limit. This is not
currently exposed in clang-cl though :confused:

Please consider some clang-cl option to control this. Voluminous macro expansion messages make looking at the output results difficult. I would normally want to see warnings/errors and nothing else.
