           Summary: unclear diagnostic after 'new'
           Product: clang
           Version: trunk
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P
         Component: -New Bugs
        AssignedTo: unassignedclangbugs at nondot.org
        ReportedBy: nicholas at mxc.ca

This diagnostic is confusing:

cm.cpp:77:17: error: missing type specifier after 'operator'
      Out = new raw_os_ostream(OutputFilename.c_str(), true);

What? gcc's is worse but at least I'm so used to it I knew what to do: add the
missing include.

Clang should've said something that means "no such type" instead of focusing on
the 'operator', which is really irrelevant and not obviously part of the code
(you say 'operator' I think of something like operator+ that has operator in
the name, and it took a moment to realize that it was talking about 'new').
