C++ compiler upgrade (gcc 4.7+)

Post by gbrlgrct » Fri Feb 15, 2013 2:09 am

It'd be nice if we were able to use C++0x / C++11 features in our code (http://gcc.gnu.org/projects/cxx0x.html). If upgrading the compiler is not an option, maybe allow a different compiler setting in the submission form with the "-std=c++0x" flag (4.5 already supports a fair amount of C++0x features (http://gcc.gnu.org/gcc-4.5/cxx0x_status.html)).

Thank you.

I'd also really like that. C++11 provides a lot of cool and really, really useful features and is supported by all recent ICPC contests I participated in. Please upgrade to G++ 4.7 (or at least provide a -std=gnu++0x option, although that would still lack some features present in 4.7). Thanks!

It would be great if you could upgrade to GCC 4.8 (or better yet, the 4.9 version that will be soon released).

Or Clang 3.4 which supports even the future C++14.

Auto variables, and For-Range loops would be very convenient...
