What does a call to `some` constructor mean to the compiler ?
I suddenly thought of this, i.e. how ctors really work..
They are forbidden from having return types:
--Then how does the following code work?
Would it be correct to assume that the compiler(or at least some of them) implement constructors so that they 'return' the constructed object ?
x = X(47); //Assuming that = is well defined or the default works
Can anyone point me to a document that has some evidence on it or says that it is false?
*I got hold of the gcc/g++ sources but have no idea how to look for the needle within the hay ...and the readme's are not very explicit :(
