[farmshare-discuss] c++ 11 support with farmshare g++

just threads and a mutex on out to file, from reading online "implemented in terms of pthreads" seems the key point

I happen to be doing a lot of development against g++ 4.6 on the myths, and it has support for threads <thread>, <mutex>, etc. (implemented in terms of pthreads), and blocks/closures. Are they other features you're curious about? I feel like threads and closures are some of the more heavyweight additions.

g++ 4.6.3 and clang++ 3 are installed on FarmShare systems and both contain some support for c++11 language features (support in g++ is still experimental): 

I’m not sure what library support for c++11 is currently available on FarmShare, however. libstdc++-v3 (4.6.3-1ubuntu5) is installed. libc++ is a potential alternative, but is not installed and would have to be built privately: 

It might be possible to have this, or a more recent version of libboost than is currently installed (1.46), built and installed centrally in /mnt/glusterfs if there’s interest. Jason might be able to comment on that possibility, or you can make a request by writing to research-computing-support at .

I posted a question about boost libraries - after some reading, c++ 11 has similar features as boost thread library, sidestepping the complicated boost library setup and avoiding the "Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4 bug with boost thread libraries" noted by Karl. Is the g++ on farmshare compatible with c++ 11?
