Surprisingly, that wasn't the problem. More surprisingly, the problem
was with the _first_ arg, the one I figured you'd mostly likely get for
free! Through trial and error, I narrowed it down to the following:
which of course is a synonym for:
Of course, this all goes back to std::string not having an implicit cast
from const char *, which I'm sure is for a good (and probably obscure)
reason, but is nonetheless really annoying. Of course, that's
especially the case after some 10 years using my own string class which
was much way more fleshed out than std::string.
Even more odd, the last parameter, which is also a string, _doesn't_
require a cast. It is however a Nullable (const
mysqlpp::Null<std::string, mysqlpp::NullIsNull>&) so I guess somehow the
compiler was able to wheedle out a proper conversion.
It works, so there's no problem at this point... just some very
unexpected things along the way.
