    Also, probably, because since it's a template, you can't add or define functions for an unspecialized class. Therefore you must either explicitly provide the type (template specialization) or add a template declaration before the class and use a template type such as T.

    Outside of your DOS world, your header file is meaningless.

    I think the syntax could have been made differently when C++ was designed, manzoor. However, I ultimately think the reason this specific syntax was chosen was for the designer to easily identify that their class is a template and therefore can easily identify which design elements are part of the template construct.
