16.2.6 The explicit Keyword

C++ adopted a new explicit keyword to the language. This keyword is a qualifier used when declaring constructors. When a constructor is declared as explicit, the compiler will never call that constructor implicitly as part of a type conversion. This allows the compiler to perform stricter type checking and to prevent simple programming errors. If your compiler does not support the explicit keyword, you should avoid it and do without the benefits that it provides.
