Description Mathieu Lacage 2008-11-25 05:05:19 EST
It would be nice if we could overload our SetAttribute methods to provide a version like this
SetAttribute (std::string name, std::string value)
  SetAttribute (name, StringValue (value));

This is purely syntactical sugar, I know.

This bug is on the ns-3.3 hot list and needs to be resolved one way or another.
