[cfe-dev] operatorCallExpr() AST matcher not working as expected

Define special stmt as those nodes for which shouldUseDataRecursionFor() returns true (namely, binary operator, unary operator, case stmt, and cxx operator call). It looks like RecursiveASTVisitor::dataTraverse() skips all special stmts whose parent is another special stmt. That's why the second op call was not visited. Because it is a special stmt, and its parent, the assign binary operator is special too. Perhaps i am ignorant, but is this intended behavior?

Subject: operatorCallExpr() AST matcher not working as expected


Given this code snippet,

  1 class Bar
  2 {
  3   public:
  4     int operator()(int);
  5 };
  7 void foo()
  8 {
  9   Bar bar;
 10   int i1;
 11   bar(1);
 12   i1 = bar(1);
 13 }

An operatorCallExpr matcher is able to find the the first
CXXOperatorCallExpr at line 11 but not the one at line 12.
MatchASTVisitor seems to skip a CXXOperatorCallExpr node under a
BinaryOperator. Is this expected?
