Problem with std::ref and std::vector

Hi guys.

I am using icpc version 16.0.0 (gcc version 5.0.0 compatibility), there seems to be an issue using std::ref and std::vector, i am trying to initalize a bunch of threads with reference for std::vector with the code:

void doTheMath(const int startIndex, const int endIndex, std::vector<int>& matrix, const int givenSeed)
{
	int seed = 0;

	for (int i = startIndex; i < endIndex; ++i) {

		seed = givenSeed + i;
		seed = VAL_A * seed + VAL_B;
		matrix = seed % 100;

	}
}

void Cpp11::randmat(int nrows, int ncols, int s) {

	int totalMatrixSize = nrows * ncols;
	int numThreads = 4;
	int operationsByThread = totalMatrixSize / numThreads;

	std::vector<int> matrix(totalMatrixSize);
	std::vector<std::thread> threadsList;

	for (int i = 0; i < numThreads; ++i) {
		threadsList.emplace_back(std::thread(doTheMath, operationsByThread * i, operationsByThread * (i + 1), std::ref(matrix), s));

	}

	for ( auto &t : threadsList ) {

		t.join();

	}
}

To compile i'm using:

icpc cpp11.cpp randmat.cpp -std=c++11 -pthread

And i'm getting this error:

/usr/include/c++/5/functional(78): error: class "std::vector<int, std::allocator<int>>" has no member "result_type"

I atached the source and the preprocessor file.

Strangely in g++ there is no problem. Someone can help me? Thanks in advance!

Hi,
Can you compile with -P to generate the preprocessed .i file and attach to this issue? Thx.

Pablo, yes this looks like a bug and I'll file with the developers. BTW, can you can you also attach the source files as well? Thanks.

Hi Pablo,
Done with investigation and this is a bug in the compiler for now and is being worked on for a fix. I'll keep you updated as soon as the release with the fix is out.  The bug is due to the recent versions of the GNU headers which use a new c++11 rule (related to SFINAE) to make the right call be chosen and a fix is being implemented.

There's no general workaround for this problem (beyond using a version of GNU older than 5.0) and so you'll have to wait for the compiler release with the fix and I'll keep you updated accordingly when it's out.

For this particular code example you attached, you can add the declaration below, somewhere before the definition of Cpp11::randmat() in your test case: (See attached newrandmat.cpp file with this code change):

namespace std {
   template<typename T>
   struct _Reference_wrapper_base<std::vector<T>> {};
}

Again, appreciate your patience and I'll keep you updated as soon as the release with the fix is out, thanks

Hello,

I am suffering from the same issue. Running latest ICC:
icpc (ICC) 16.0.1 20151021
gcc (SUSE Linux) 5.3.1 20151207 [gcc-5-branch revision 231355]

I get the same error messages, e.g.:
/usr/include/c++/5/functional(78): error: class "lambda []()->std::unique_ptr<Object, std::default_delete<Object>>" has no member "result_type"

I'd like to inquire about fix release date and possible temporary workaround.

Thank you

Hi Shlomi,
As mentioned in my earlier response, there's no general workaround for this problem (beyond using a version of GNU older than 5.0) and so you'll have to wait for the compiler release with the fix and I'll keep you updated accordingly when it's out. Appreciate your patience till then.
