In case of failures by MS's VC++ 7.1, and in order to get a better sense
whether it is the compiler
or C++ specifications (which I am mostly suspecious of), I would like to try
it on different platforms.
I am talking of course in cases the compilation+linking passes succesfully
(on MS (and Borland C++BuilderX)) and the output is unacceptable.
I am sure (99.99%,... I must leave room to an error on my part...) that the
problem is either in the compiler and / or the C++ standard specifications.
For example, in one case, ALL the program does is outputing typeid(s) of
pointers of 3 instanciated templates where some of the pointers members
point to objects that have not been even declared at all... at the expense
of missing pointers types to object that have been instanciated.
Could not go much wrong with such a program. For commercial reasons, I am
not at liberty to publish the code.
Thanks in advance.
