This small test program demonstrates a problem I am having with virtual base classes and a pointer to member. When I try to call a function in a class that has virtual base classes through a pointer to member the program crashes. I have compiled and run this same test successfully under Borland C++ 5.02 I am using cygwin B20.1 with EGCS 1.1.1 installed. You can compile the test using the command "gcc Try.cpp -o Try.exe". When the program is run I get the following output: bash-2.02$ gcc try.cpp -o try.exe bash-2.02$ ./try Calling Test1::Click directly. void Test1::Click(void) Calling Test1::Click through pointer to member. void Test1::Click(void) Calling Test2::Click directly. void Test2::Click(void) Calling Test2::Click through pointer to member. [main] D:\race\test\try.exe 1016 (0) handle_exceptions: Exception: STATUS_ACCESS _VIOLATION [main] try 1016 (0) handle_exceptions: Dumping stack trace to try.exe.core The Test2 class is using virtual base classes, unlike the Test1 class. This difference causes an exception to be thrown when the pointer to member is used. Any help would be much appreciated.
