Hi Jeff,

An issue for you from the CA client library.  Tom's right about the rule (this 
is not a recent change either, it's present in my 1998 first edition of the 
spec), but I have no idea why the restriction exists.  I'm guessing that 
Apple's clang C++ compiler has started to check this.

Thanks Tom.

Hi Andrew,

I believe there is an error in some EPICS base source files in which reference 
members are declared mutable:

In file included from ../cac.cpp:39:
../cac.h:269:5: error: 'mutable' cannot be applied to references
    mutable epicsMutex & mutex;
    ^
../cac.h:270:5: error: 'mutable' cannot be applied to references
    mutable epicsMutex & cbMutex;
    ^
In file included from ../cac.cpp:47:
../udpiiu.h:152:5: error: 'mutable' cannot be applied to references
    mutable epicsMutex & cbMutex;
    ^
../udpiiu.h:153:5: error: 'mutable' cannot be applied to references
    mutable epicsMutex & cacMutex;
    ^


The C++ specification (section 7.1.1 item 10) explicitly forbids mutable 
reference members:
http://www.open-std.org/jtc1/sc22/wg21/docs/papers/2011/n3242.pdf

Best regards,
Tom

An error is only a mistake if you don't learn from it.
When you learn something from it, it becomes a lesson.
