To do[edit]

Needs information about compiler support. The recent "Feature Pack" for Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 includes partial TR1 support, but it misses the parts of TR1 that are inherited from C99 and it also misses the special mathematical functions.

Numerical Facilities[edit]

I've been a computer programmer for 25 years, and I have never used any of the functions listed under numerical facilities. Why would anyone propose a standard that includes these? One might just as well propose a standard to include a chess engine and a solitaire solver. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 140.180.54.117 (talk) 08:28, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

It seems you didn't get in some areas in your 25 years of computer software. Random number generation are pretty common is some big domains like video games, and both random number generation and special maths functions are useful in mathematic calculation computing softwares. You can live a life without needing it, like you can live a life without having to do any SQL... but if it's considered as a standard, that's because their is a real need.

TR2 page[edit]

Why does all the "TR2" links I find on Wikipedia points to this page instead of a new page that would have at least the informations we already know about what to expect from TR2? see end of the page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C%2B%2B0x MJKlaim (talk) 22:01, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

It exists as a redirect because not enough information exists to warrant a stand-alone article, or no one has taken the effort to gather the necessary information and create the article. decltype (talk) 05:30, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
