    vtable - where is it?

    When a vtable is created, is it linked with the object code to create an executable (*.exe) or is it a separate file that must be included with the executable?

    if i'm thinking right, you mean virtual table?

    if thats it, u don't need to worry about the vtable at all. The compiler will work it out for you.

    Yes, I'm referrring to the 'virtual table'.

    Do you mean that the compiler will put the virtual table(s) in the object code or will the virtual table be a separate file?

    It will be in the executable already.
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.
