Why is register depricated?? 121.242.176.7 07:03, 7 November 2012 (PST)

It is deprecated in the current C++ standard, per paragraphs §7.1.1[dcl.stc]/3 and §D.2[depr.register]. As for why, it's likely because most (all?) existing C++ compilers completely ignore this keyword, and have been for many years. Or, to quote Herb Sutter, It's exactly as meaningful as whitespace. (note that it's not so in the C programming language, where register changes the program semantics) --Cubbi 07:37, 7 November 2012 (PST)
