  • C++ Virtual Inheritance

    I don't know what the odds are that anyone actually having this problem will run across this on google. But maybe someone will read it and remember before-hand. I have an inheritance hierarchy something like Interface -> ABC -> C -> D. Each constructor explicitly calls its parent class'...
