private within this context, the mind of man is surely not this twisted ?

class a
{
public:
int x;
private:
int y;
}

class b : public a
{
public:
void b::somemethod()
}

void b::somemethod()
{
y = 20; // <- compiler error, what? no, the mind of man is surely
not this twisted
}

I was expecting b to have everything a has and "somemethod "
WTF ?

Can a derived class use this?

public:
using I_formerly_was_ protected;
Yes.

If so, privacy is even less of an illusion of encapsulation.. .
So?

Hello, I am writing an application using two event-driven libraries: wxPython, and twisted. The first problem I encountered in the program is the confliction between the two all-consuming methods of the two libraries: app.MainLoop, and reactor.run. Additionally, the fact that wxPython was to receive requests from the twisted framework as well as the end user seemed to be simply asking for trouble. My initial solution was, naturally,...

g++ complains about illegal access to a private member when the following is compiled with a private copy constructor for the class C. When the copy constructor is public, the program runs and demonstrates(?) that the copy constructor is never called (at least no sign of its chatter on std::cout is visible). So - is it necessary to have a public copy constructor in order to use "function style" initializers for an array of objects? ...

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