Re: operator < stopped working
All were working well until I decided to add a copy constructor.
Please see the program. I am getting
"c:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\Vc7\include
\functional(139) : error C2679: binary '<' : no operator found which
takes a right-hand operand of type 'const D' (or there is no
Seems like I can't guarantee constant-ness anymore with the copy
constructor. How do I get around with this ?
// test-sets.cpp : Defines the entry point for the console
using namespace std;
Please drop the semicolons after the function bodies. They are
The usual signature (the compiler-generated one's at least) is
D(D const& d)
There is also a need to have a const version of that function:
std::string const& getA() const
Don't let it throw you off that they have the same body, they are
bool operator < (D d) const
The usual (idiomatic) way is to pass the operand by a reference
bool operator < (D const& d) const
typedef std::set<D> dsets;
D *d = new D();
What you should write is
Or at least
Drop the habit of doing "new" all the time. Besides, you're
inconsistent. You didn't 'new' your 'dsets' object!
Please remove capital 'A's when replying by e-mail
