But how can I create a library then ?
At one point I need to say to the library
I want NurbsCurve<float,3>, NurbsCurve<float,2>, NurbsCurve<double,3>
A long time ago I tried a method where all the sources are available,
by including them inside the header files (windows VC++ needs that).
Which is what -frepo is all about I suppose, but I still think the
right way it to hide the implementation (20,000+ lines of codes) and
only allow the user to see the header files.
Also, maybe I was using an old linker last time I did tests, but
basically when a tempalte specialization is defined, the linker
complains that it is multiply defined.
template <> void f<float>();
With above situation, f<float> is multiply defined.
As this changed ?
