    external errors on project files? Know what they are but why are they happening here.

    Hi all,

    I have created a template linked list thingy and it works perfectly. However, when i split the file up to only leave the list functionalty in the list.cpp and the main stuff in a main.cpp i get external erros on all calls to the functions in list.cpp. This should really be basic stuff, as it is all in a project and i include the appropriate header files etc.

    I have attached the files if anyone could try it on there compiler?? Maybe i have stared myself blind on something.

    Thanks in advanced.

    Unless your compiler supports the export keyword, you'll have to include all the template implementation in the header.
