[Voted into the WP at the February, 2012 meeting; moved to DR at the October, 2012 meeting.]

Proposed resolution (August, 2011):

This issue is resolved by the resolution of issue 577.

Date: 2002-01-09.00:00:00

11.3.5 [dcl.fct]/2 restricts the use of void as parameter type, but does not mention CV qualified versions. Since void f(volatile void) isn't a callable function anyway, 11.3.5 [dcl.fct] should also ban cv-qualified versions. (BTW, this follows C)

Suggested resolution:

A possible resolution would be to add (cv-qualified) before void in

The parameter list (void) is equivalent to the empty parameter list. Except for this special case, (cv-qualified) void shall not be a parameter type (though types derived from void, such as void*, can).
