A funny example of C++ code that MS can compile :)

In the code below, static_assert operates on the addresses of local variables, but however MS compiles it and the assertion does not fail:

#include <tuple>
#include <string>
struct A
    int a;
    double b;
    std::string c;
void f()
    A a{ 1, 3.0, "abc" };
    constexpr auto t1 = std::tie(a.a, a.b, a.c);
    static_assert(&std::get<0>(t1) == &a.a);

Use the following command to compile this example:

cl /std:c++17 /EHsc a.cpp

GCC 11 can’t compile this, but compiles the following code:

#include <tuple>
int main()
    constexpr auto t = std::make_tuple(1, 3.0);
    static_assert(std::get<0>(t) == 1 && std::get<1>(t) == 3.0);
    return 0;
