The ‘new’ auto keyword in C++11

Reading up on some of the new C++11-features, and stumbled upon the redefinition of the ‘auto’ keyword.

Though I don’t particularly like the choice to redefine the meaning of an already existing keyword, I do however see some good uses of this new keyword, especially when working with lots of externally produced and poorly documented libraries – something I’m all too familiar with.

Long live the ‘new’ auto keyword!
