Hello everybody.I'm a undergraduate student of Computer Science at the University of Udine, Italy, I'm anexperienced C++ developer and I've followed Clang development for a couple of years(not so actively as I whished).To being able to (have the time to) work on clang more actively,I've decided to apply to the google summer of code for the clang project. I know I'm a bit late for this- the period of "students discussing their ideas with organizations" ends today - but I hope this is not a problem.My idea would be to work on the C++ side of Clang. In particular, I would like to work on implementinglambda functions of C++ 2011.This would probably require to implement a couple of other missing things like late-specified return type.
I've read what came up on this list about this topic, and I'm aware of the integration issues with theblocks runtime etc...If you feel this task is a little small for the three months period of the gsoc, I could also include in theplan other C++ 2011 features such as constexpr or the new literals or another..
If I get accepted, this would also be the main part of my undergraduate thesis. I think this is a strongmotivation for me to finish in time (I should graduate in september) and kind of a guarantee foryou that I'm not going to disappear.In the next days, when the student application period opens, I'll submit the formal application,but in the meantime some advice would be appreciated.
Is there someone who would like to mentor this project?
