typedef inside a template class

Hi!
I'm trying to do the following:

emplate <typename Resource>
class ResourceManager
{
public:
typedef std::list<Resou rce*>::iterator Iterator;
typedef std::list<Resou rce*>::const_it erator ConstIterator;

Visual Studio .NET doesn't like this.
Any ideas why? Is there a way around it?

I would say it is a compiler bug because both
typedef std::list<Resou rce*>::iterator Iterator;
typedef std::list<Resou rce*>::const_it erator ConstIterator;
should compile.

It should? According to what?

Anyway, if you think that it should compile, then you need to report a bug
to Comeau Computing because their compiler refuses to compile this:
----------------------------
#include <list>

template<class T> class R {
typedef std::list<T>::i terator Iterator; // ***************
std::list<T> l;
public:
R() {}
Iterator begin() { return l.begin(); }
};

int main() {
R<int> r;
r.begin();
}
-----------------------------
but compiles it fine if I change the line with asterisks to

typedef typename std::list<T>::i terator Iterator; // ********

(unless of course the culprit is the number of asterisks...)

It is not consistent with the normal usage of typedef.
Normally one has always written such:

typedef int MyType;

struct S {};
typedef S MyStructType;

but now you say this must be rewritten to
typedef typename int MyType;
typedef typename S MyStructType;

But it is not compatible to existing code.
Either it is a bug of Microsoft's .NET compiler and Comeau's (I haven't checked the latter)
or you need to show me where in the standards this has changed.

What's "normal"?
Normally one has always written such:

typedef int MyType;

struct S {};
typedef S MyStructType;
Yes, both 'int' and 'S' are _independently_ type-ids.
but now you say this must be rewritten to
typedef typename int MyType;
typedef typename S MyStructType;
No, I said no such thing.
But it is not compatible to existing code.
WTF are you talking about?
Either it is a bug of Microsoft's .NET compiler and Comeau's (I haven't checked the latter)
or you need to show me where in the standards this has changed.


The Standard requires the word 'typename' with any _dependent_ identifier
that is to be recognized as a type. Search the news archives and you will
find many discussions on this.

the problem: I use a typedef inside a class template, than I use this type (dim_v<N1>::Type) to define the argument of a template function f but when I call this function from main, the compiler (gcc 3.4.1) tell me: "no matching function found". If someone, more expert than me, could tell me what is wrong I would be very happy

I'm planning to create a macro-based property system (reflection, automatic serializing for properties, that kind of stuff).

Hello Experts! I have the following Array template class see below.

Hello NG, sorry to bother again, but I am a lit surprised that I got no answer on my post (attached below). So I refined the code a little bit :-). If there is a typedefed class X inside a class Y which has the same typedef name and used in the form "Instance_Y::type::type" MSVC7.1 fails to compile. See example below.

I'm aware, that up to date, "typedef templates" are not defined within the C++ standard. The seemingly common workaround is this: template <class T> struct MyTypeDef { /* ultimately I need something like this: MyOtherClass<T> Type; but let's keep it simple for the moment */
