Description Christoph Hertzberg 2019-01-04 17:55:00 UTC
C++11 has been supported by every main-stream compiler for some years. We could enable C++11 mode testing by default.
Also, we should make it possible to run unit tests in C++14/17/... mode. This could reveal usage of deprecated constructs.

To make that future proof, EIGEN_TEST_CXX11 should be deprecated and replaced by something like EIGEN_TEST_CXX_STANDARD (which can be 03/11/14/17/20/...)
Comment 1 Gael Guennebaud 2019-02-19 14:20:57 UTC
Yes, we should replace EIGEN_TEST_CXX11 by EIGEN_TEST_CXX_STANDARD. On my side I use -DEIGEN_TEST_CUSTOM_CXX_FLAGS="-std=cxx.." as a workaround.
