template <typename T> struct polymorphic : public T ???

Last week I asked here how I could detect that a T was polymorphic, and
very thoughtful and useful replies that I used straight away. Thanks to all who

This week, it turns out that detecting whether T is polymorphic clashes with
a new requirement, that T be allowed to not be complete.

Last week, this code used to compile:

typedef std::queue<Requ est> RequestQueue ;
typedef envelope<Reques tQueue> Queue ;

This week, I now have to wrap std::queue into a polymorphic
container, as in:

struct RequestQueue : public std::queue<Requ est> {
// envelope does NOT work with monomorphic types
virtual ~RequestQueue() {} ;
} ;

typedef envelope<Reques tQueue> Queue ;

Obviously, I'd like to create some kind of adaptor template ...

template <typename T> struct polymorphic : public T {
virtual ~polymorhic() {}
} ;

intended usage:

typedef polymorphic<std ::queue<int> > Queue ;

But this doesn't compile!

The FAQ#35 seems mute here, and I'm beginning to suspect that
something is wrong with my syntax. I also checked
http://www.boost.org/libs/utility/call_traits.htm &
http://www.boost.org/libs/conversion/cast.htm (because it
contained the word: polymorphic_cas t, but this turned out
a red-herring)

What would be the correct way to do this?

Many thanks, again.

template <typename T> struct polymorphic : public T {
virtual ~polymorhic() {}
} ;

I'm not sure exactly what went wrong, but this first version
was correct ...

#include <iostream>
#include <string>
#include <queue>
template <typename T> struct polymorphic : public T {
virtual ~polymorphic() {}
} ;

test_00001() {
typedef polymorphic<std ::queue<int> > IntQueue ;

IntQueue queue ;

queue.push(5) ;
queue.push(6) ;
queue.push(7) ;
queue.push(8) ;

while(!queue.em pty()) {
int i = queue.front() ;
queue.pop() ;
std::cout << "Just popped: " << i << std::endl ;

Though I couldn't find a single example of use that particular
syntax (which kind of turns templates inside out) it is
accepted by gcc 4.

Hi, everyone, I've checked a couple of on-line resources and am unable to determine how reinterpret_cast<> is different from static_cast<>. They both seem to perform a compile-time casting of one type to another. However, I'm certain that there is something else that is happening. Can someone explain the difference or recommend an online site that can explain it to me?

Hello, I was working on a program where I needed to take a vector storing objects of type std::string and convert each object to an int and store the ints in another vector. I decided that I should create a templated function for this because I've done similar things before and expect to do similar things again (i.e., converting a collection of one type to a collection of another type). This is my test program, it compiles but if I try to...

Hi, I have a query. All html tags start with < and end with >. Suppose i want to display either '<' or '>' or say some text like '<Company>' in html how do i do it? One method is to use &lt, &gt ,&ltCompany&gt to display '<', '>' and '<Company>' respectively. But is there any freeware code available which could implement the above functionality without having to use &gt,&lt and such stuff???

I have a simple template method that looks like template < typename T> void WhatEver( void) { T t; // How to print with cout the T value (not the t value)? } I thought maybe RTTI would work, but that deals with classes with virtual methods. Since T is most likely going to be an int or double, is there any built in C++ way to print out the value of T.
