If you move your main to a different CPP file you will run into errors.
But not too difficult to fix with a little thought. The problem is that the implementation in stack.cpp is still a bunch of templates, so when compiled it does not generate any code. I discovered this by generating the assembly listing. So I added the following dummy function to stack.cpp which instantiates one of every template function and it compiles and links cleanly.
void sample()
{
    stack<T> dummy;
    dummy.push("A");
    dummy.size();
    dummy.top();
    dummy.pop();
    dummy.invert();
}


Oh, and I missed the part in the original which said "do not amend stack.h unless you see any mistakes". The mistake of course was all those lower case 't's in the templates. Changing them to upper case fixes it.

So my take home is that I learned a few useful things, including how not to use templates. But I think the test was valid as it is a good challenge for the candidate. Had he got it right it would probably have created an opportunity to discuss the whole thing with the people who devised the test. I don't think they are as dumb as first appears.
