Re: Q about g++-3 and template instantiation
Ilya, thanks VERY MUCH. This solved my problem in a flash. My
application (38 thousand lines, compared to the 6 lines of my
test-file) now compiles and links properly in g++-3, and, with a
preprocessor switch, in g++-2 as well. In case other folks are
interested, below is how I now do it (sorry that I test for __GNUC__;
this code is meant to work for many other compilers as well) ...
#if __GNUC__ == 3
Thanks very much for the help, delivered so quickly!!
