the problem I'm running into right now regarding specialization i had to work around by using a common base class to "share functionality" and it doesn't work very well. I have a lot of duplicated code in the specialization, and i've had to use "new" on some methods. It's rather awful, actually.

Luckily most of the time, I can avoid the need altogether but in this case, specialization would make the most sense, so i did my best to "make it work"

it's baling wire and chewing gum compared to what i can do in C++

I guess for me, once I relearned C++ the way it's taught in Moo and Koenig's book, I used generic programming for most of my coding.

It doesn't make maintenance snowball. If it does, you're probably using it wrong and I highly recommend Accelerated C++ by the two authors I alluded to above. It's worth every penny of the $20-$30 asking price and you can usually get it used for a song.

It's also a mercifully short book. It's one of the best programming books I've ever encountered for that - it's concise, accessible, and teaches something that's not typically taught well (C++ programming)

But alas, using C++ the way they show you to use it makes me miss being able to do things that way now.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
