You should fix the lint warning.


It took me a while to realize that this functionality is really about trying to get to the name of the constructor for a given type -- perhaps this should be a single function called getCtorNameFromType() or something?

Actually, given that this is a narrowing matcher from a CXXConstructExpr, can't you look at CXXConstructExpr::getConstructor() to get the CXXConstructorDecl and check the name from there? That seems cleaner than trying to identify the constructor name through string matching.

ymandel added inline comments.

hasAnyName is a VariadicMatcher, so it supports passing a list directly (as a single argument), see ASTMatchersInternal.h, line 103.

Given that, I'm pretty sure this function is unnecessary; you can just call hasAnyName directly below instead of this function.


Following up on Aaron's comment above, I think you want something like this: hasDeclaration(cxxConstructorDecl(ofClass(cxxRecordDecl(hasAnyName(removeNamespaces(StringNames))))


nit: I'd put this comment line before the anyOf since it describes the whole thing, while the following comments describe each branch, respectively.

I applied ymandel's suggestion, which I think simplified things a bit.

LGTM. I'll leave it to Aaron, though, to accept.
