C Object class

0 votes
There is a generic class in Java called "Object" that all classes are subclasses of. I'm trying to make a linked list library (for a school project), and I've only gotten it to work for one type, not multiple, so is there anything similar?

EDIT: I'd post the code, but I don't have it with me right now.

No, there is no generic base class in C++.

You can create your own and derive classes from it, but in order to take advantage of polymorphism, you must keep collections of pointers (or smart pointers).

 After re-examining your question, I must mention std::list.

If you want a list that can specialize on multiple types, you use templates (of which std::list is one):

std::list<classA> a;
std::list<classB> b;

If you need a list that can hold multiple types in a single instance, use the base class approach:

std::list<Base*> x;

What type of members can I add in a c++ abstract class

Hello, let's say I have an abstract class with a few pure abstract functions and a few classes that derive from it, and all of the data from these classes eventually becomes similar, I was wondering if it would be wise, or even possible, to declare a vector under protected in the abstract class to collect the data so something like that. class A { protected: vector <string> ...READ MORE

Declare abstract class in c++

An abstract class is one that is intended to be used as a base class .  At least one pure virtual function exists in an abstract class.  A pure virtual function is declared in the class declaration by using a pure specifier (= 0) in the declaration of a virtual member function.
