using a template in a vector - getting error C2955

Gil
trying to use a template in a vector, in Visual Studio 6 on Windows
2000

#include <vector>

using namespace std;

template <typename T>
class AnyValue {
T val;
public :
AnyValue(T inv)
{
val = inv;
}
};

class ValuesObject {
int count;
vector<AnyValue, allocator<AnyValue> > ivo; // error occurs here!!
public :
ValuesObject() {}
~ValuesObject() {}
int getCount()
{
return count;
}
void addValue(AnyValue av)
{
vector<AnyValue, allocator<AnyValue> >::iterator iter = ivo.end();
ivo.insert(iter, av);
}
};

I'm getting :

error C2955: 'AnyValue' : use of class template requires template
argument list

Can anyone see what I am doing wrong?

As far as C++ is concerned, is what I am doing correct? Is this a
compiler issue with Visual C++?

AnyValue is a class template and NOT a concrete class.
Vector is also a class template and to make a concrete class out of it you need
to provide a
template parameter (some built-in type/concrete class).
Since Vector does not expect a template template parameter, AnyValue is
rejected by it.
Hence you can't pass it as an argument to vector.

A small aside - better to say:

AnyValue(T inv) : val(inv)
{
}

This will cause val to just be constructed, instead of being default
constructed and then assigned the value of inv. Even better, say:

AnyValue(const T &inv) : val(inv)

This will prevent an unnecessary copy when the constructor is called.
class ValuesObject {
int count;
vector<AnyValue, allocator<AnyValue> > ivo; // error occurs here!!


You have defined AnyValue as a template class, so it needs a template
argument (eg. AnyValue<int>).

It looks like you might mean:

template <typename T>
class ValuesObject
{
vector<AnyValue<T> > ivo;
...
};

Hope this is helpful,

You have defined AnyValue as a template class but you have not provided the
template arguments.
All you have to do is to replace "AnyValue" in class ValuesObject something
like "AnyValue<int>".
Else if you do not want a concrete type like int make ValuesObject class
also as a template class and provide the
template argument for AnyValue.See the code below.That compiles without any
error in the Visual C++ 6.

#include <vector>

using namespace std;

template <typename T>
class AnyValue {
T val;
public :
AnyValue(T inv )
{
val = inv;
}
};

template <typename U> class ValuesObject {
int count;
vector<AnyValue<U>, allocator<AnyValue<U> > > ivo;
public :
ValuesObject() {}
~ValuesObject() {}
int getCount()
{
return count;
}
void addValue(AnyValue<U> av)
{
vector<AnyValue<U>, allocator<AnyValue<U> > >::iterator iter =
ivo.end();
ivo.insert(iter, av);
}
};

[SNIP] AnyValue is a class template and NOT a concrete class.

Since Vector does not expect a template template parameter, AnyValue is

Just to elaborate on how to do it right you need to supply a template
argument. For example:

vector< AnyValue<int> > MyVec; // note the blank between the two greater
signs!

Let me also elaborate again :-)
You need the space between the two greater-than signs because of a compiler
property called as "Maximal Munch" i.e.
consume as many tokens as possible. When compiler sees the two >> signs it
interprets it as the shift operator hence the need for the
space as Chris pointed out.

BTW there is talk that future compilers will parse such a statement
correctly even with the blank missing. Though, todays compilers will
certainly have a problem with this.

Absolutely true :-)
In fact I read that C++ Standard Committee will take care of it in the next
revision of the standard.
