Yes, indeed. As I have said previously the change I have made for compliance with Visual Studio 2017 was broking compliance with old compilers such as 4.8.5 you were using previously.

Using an up-to-date compiler (gcc from 5.0 or clang from 3.5) is indeed a workaround.

Keeping the compatibility with old compilers is an open-question still.

If it can help someone else:
I installed gcc 8.2.0 in my VM centos 7. It took 2:50min but now I can compile certi.

After commit on July, 8, related to other ticket, I still have an error with centos 7. May be the solution is to use a newer gcc? Which one could be used?

Obviously the last commit I have made is broking the compatibility with old compiler version such as 4.8.5.

It is related to the usage of make_unique<...> which is undefined in old std libraries (such as gcc 4.8.5).

I will have a look at it.

I'm compiling certi master, in a centOS 7, gcc 4.8.5.
It works fine for commit c2146229a but it does not work using commit 4dbc8a144c (Wed Apr 24 2019).
After 47% of compilation, I have the following error:
/home/jcardoso/softVM/pthlaVM/certi/RTIG/Federation.cc: In constructor ‘certi::rtig::Federation::Federation(const string&, certi::FederationHandle, certi::SocketServer&, certi::AuditFile&, std::vector<std::basic_string<char> >, const string&, certi::RtiVersion, int)’:

Do you have any help?
