[Voted into the WP at the March, 2009 meeting.]

Date: 2008-09-15.00:00:00

Proposed resolution (September, 2008):

Change 9.2.4 [dcl.typedef] paragraph 1 as follows:

...The typedef specifier shall not be used in a function-definition (9.5 [dcl.fct.def]), and it shall not be combined in a decl-specifier-seq with any other kind of specifier except a type-specifier, and it shall be used neither in the decl-specifier-seq of a parameter-declaration (9.3.4.6 [dcl.fct]) nor in the decl-specifier-seq of a function-definition (9.5 [dcl.fct.def]).

9.2.4 [dcl.typedef] paragraph 1 says,

The typedef specifier shall not be used in a function-definition (9.5 [dcl.fct.def])...

Does this mean that the following is ill-formed?

    void f() {
        typedef int INT;
    }
