This wording is relative to N4842.
Modify [locale] as indicated:
[…] ~locale(); // not virtual
constlocale& operator=(const locale& other) noexcept; template<class Facet> locale combine(const locale& other) const; […]
Modify [locale.cons] as indicated:
constlocale& operator=(const locale& other) noexcept;
-14- Effects: Creates a copy of other, replacing the current value.-15- Returns: *this.
[ 2019-12-21 Issue Prioritization ]
Priority to 3 after reflector discussion based on the observation that we have implementation divergence.
Curiously, locale's copy assignment operator currently returns const locale&. As Casey Carter noted in microsoft/STL#268, this is:
The only occurrence in the entire Standard Library.
Preventing locale from satisfying std::copyable.
We aren't aware of any reason for this to be const. (I observe that this hasn't changed since N1804 on 2005-04-27 and probably goes back to C++98; I suspect that when this was originally specified, copy assignment operators were relatively new, and conventions for them weren't rigorously followed.)
