No, push_back copies the argument, so his code is ok. Personally I would think it's a bug in MS's std lib and try STLport.

~wxApp() is virtual, so his destructor is as well. Nevertheless it's good coding practice to write it out, otherwise you might forget it when really necessary.

That's not true. wxDataViewCtrl is built around this paradigm. I also believe wxGrid supports custom data backends.

"-L" adds a library search directory, it's "-l" you want (or use -L for the directory and -l for the library file).

I guess these standards need revision, quite a couple of templates are now in trunk :)

Running configure gives me a makefile in contrib, maybe you should check your configure switches.
I would also recommend you to use wxStyledTextControl as it's been assimilated into wxWidgets itself in 2.9.

I don't understand, why is that a problem? Just implement the class and corresponding xml format in a way where that difference doesn't matter.

I use sigc++. When I decided that a signal slot mechanism was ideal for one of my apps, I looked at all respective libraries I could find, namely sigslot, sigc++ and boost::signal. I don't exactly remember the full reasons why I chose sigc++ over the others, but what I faintly remember is that sigsl...

That should be a matter of the OS and GFX-card driver (or even the hardware on the card).

However, the mistery is still unsolved since I don't see why not specified default parameters in connect() makes the code crash and if they are specified the code works. There is no mystery, the default parameter for the eventSink parameter is NULL, not this. If you name NULL explicitly, it will cr...

That's wrong. In UTF16 each character is minimally 16 bits long, but there are some that need more.

If I understand the MS explanation of this error correctly, you need to declare the operator const. ie:

Code: Select all

operator() (const A& a, const B& b) const {

No, rc (Windows resource) files don't understand the xpm format. You need to convert it to icon (ico) format.

It is as possible on linux as on windows to create a self-sufficient "exe". It's just usually not done. The reason is (probably) that linux traditionally runs on a lot of differet platforms, while Windows is pretty much x86 only.
