Can't make a COM Object external

Hi,
I cannot make my COM Object external, so I can access it from other
..cpp project files. Here is a bit of the code:

(globals.cpp)
....
#include "globals.h"
#include <oleacc.h>
#include <mshtml.h>
#include <atlbase.h>
....

CComPtr<IHTMLDo cument2> spDoc;
(globals.h)
#include <windows.h>
#include <ole2.h>
#include <olectl.h>
#include <oleacc.h>
#include <assert.h>
#include "msctf.h"

....
extern CComPtr<IHTMLDo cument2> spDoc;
The problem is with the extern line in globals.h I think, but I don't
know how to fix it. Could someone please help me?

You need additional includes in Globals.h.
The compiler has no idea what a CComPtr is.
Include the header file which declares that and
you should be fine.

as C++ defaults to external linkage for non-consts and non-static(right?): Qn) why is it then : a object declared (*without* static keyword)outside main() and outside all functions , automatically considered a static object ?. doesn't static mean its internal linkage? accding me if u define a object like this then A should be external linkage. Obj A('a'); // Global int main()

The names of these success, or failure functions will differ, and I'd like to know how I can pass the name of a function to my tool, and how my tool can call the function, using that...

After many years of dealing with definition and linkage issues in ways that I know to be safe, I've decided it's time to try to understand this area properly. Consider a header file with the file scope declaration int i; This header is included in two files that refer to i but do not declare it. The two files build together into a single program.

Hi, previously I used Eclipse CDT for compiling my files just to get started with C and leave C++ behind.

Before I get too carried away with something that's probably unnecessary, please allow me to throw around some ideas. I've been looking for a method of transparent, scalable, and human-readable object persistence, and I've tried the standard lib's Shelve, Zope's ZODB, Divmod's Axiom, and others. However, while they're all useful, none satisfies all my criteria. So I started writing some toy code of my own: http://paste.plone.org/5227 ...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
