I'm not using a code generator. C++ already has one built in. It's called template and that's literally what it's designed to do.


Rather certain that is not why they were specifically added to the language.

The fact that you can do that is ok. Just not what they exist for.

Following agrees with my understanding of the addition.

Template (C++) - Wikipedia[^]

"Major inspirations for C++ templates were the parameterized module"

One case doesn't mean you would need to to it for all.

And your lament is that it does not have all the functionality you would like for this specific situation. So you can hack around it or find another solution.

Anyway, I'd rather deal


Again this is another difference in domain spaces. Maintenance for you is based on what you do because that is the business model that you have created.

For me I must consider how others will maintain what I have created. So for complex solutions I must consider the totality of what some future developer might be dealing with when they look at my code. So I would consider a one off module as being more understandable rather than perhaps several different code paths to work around to a potential solution.
