That would be a strong reason not to use std::stuff in FLTK, even today - if it would still be the case.

I *think* I heard that dependency on exception is removed in later std:: lib versions but I do not know and can't currently test.

Any chance to test on your [oldest | most primitive] embedded platforms, cross-compiler suites, or ... ?

I'll try, but can't at the moment. May be a week or so yet...

However, my oldest/most primitive targets will never run fltk anyway, so they're not a constraint. I guess we'd need to determine which tools would be a problem... Somehow.

OKAY, I withdraw my request to consider using std::vector etc.. There's no need to test. Thanks.

Thinking about the problem, the only valid answer we could get from testing is that it doesn't work. If it works, the basic question is still not answered: are there other systems that rely on FLTK and which can't use std:: stuff.

I believe the only logical conclusion is:

(2) If we can't use it, create some internal FLTK classes we can use "everywhere" internally. These classes need not (must not?) be exposed in the public FLTK API.

This is, in effect, the path I took...

... and I think that's what we need to do as well.

Thanks for reading and replying so far. IMHO this thread is now done.

I'll evaluate using already existing FLTK and maybe new classes and open another thread when I have something usable.
