Rvalue References Explained

Thomas Becker just sent me a note about an article that he'd just written. Rvalue references aren't in wide use, yet, and they aren't part of the official standard, either. Not many people understand them, yet. I'm sure his article will dramatically increase the number of people who understand them since Thomas is such a good writer.

If you'd like to play with rvalue references after reading his article, GCC 4.3.1 is what you want. You can access them using the -std=c++0x compiler option.

Doug Gregor's C++0x page can be used to track the progress of that compiler option.
