C++ is a complex language and an evolving one, and its standard definition (the ISO C++ standard) was only recently completed. As a result, your C++ compiler may occasionally surprise you, even when its behavior is correct. This section discusses some areas that frequently give rise to questions of this sort.
|Static Definitions:||Static member declarations are not definitions|
|Name lookup:||Name lookup, templates, and accessing members of base classes|
|Temporaries:||Temporaries may vanish before you expect|
|Copy Assignment:||Copy Assignment operators copy virtual bases twice|
