We are mentioning C++. Please re-read my prior email. > And you really should do this because it’s ridiculous not to use C++ > polymorphism if we use C11’s. There are three options: 1. Re-introduce C++ bindings, delay MPI-4. 2. Re-introduce C++ bindings, BigCount misses the MPI-4 train. 4. Do not re-introduce C++ bindings, BigCount catches the MPI-4 train. The feedback from the Forum was that BigCount was a blocker/gating issue for MPI-4. Hence, this is why the BigCount WG is not planning at this time to re-introduce C++ bindings via BigCount. There is a longer term plan (think: MPI-5) to introduce a full-featured set of C++ bindings to MPI -- one that does not necessarily have a 1:1 correspondence to the C bindings. That is a different, much longer effort, and will definitely not make it into MPI-4. -- Jeff Squyres jsquy...@cisco.com _______________________________________________ mpi-forum mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.mpi-forum.org/mailman/listinfo/mpi-forum
