C++ Template - Does it work on 16-bit platform

C++ Template - Does it work on 16-bit platform

Hi All,

I was using an open source wbxmlparser for my mobile application.

Now I am supposed to port the mobile application into a 16-bit
platform,

The parser is not working at all for 16-bit platform, I am suspecting
the template classes used by the open source wbxmlparser is causing
this problem.

Any help will be appreciated.

Do you mean the specific class template you use or the concept of
template as a whole. Only the latter is a language issue. If it is not a
language issue then you will have far better response in a newsgroup
dedicated to the topic in question.

Any help will be appreciated.

Only if the compiler you are using supports templates.
Many older 16 bit compilers did not, because the compilers
pre-dated templates in the language.

What compiler (from what year) are you trying to use?

The availability of templates has nothing at all to do with the native bit
width of the target platform.

No. This can't be the problem.

The Digital Mars C++ compiler for 16 bit X86 supports templates.
