First and foremost I want to apologize if this is a duplicate, it does sound like a question that has been asked a million times but I can’t seem to find an answer that suits me.
I have an abstract class
A with the pure virtual method
void foo(int a) = 0
Then I have several classes that inherit from
A and all of them define the method
foo. But I need one of them,
B, to make it so
foo takes an extra parameter,
int b, so sort of an overload.
Then I would like to do this:
A *bInstance = new B(); bInstance -> foo(1, 2);
But I get an error telling me that
foo is taking too many parameters.
Writing this, I realize it’s kind of a weird thing to do so maybe you can’t do this and it’s good that you can’t do it. But in case it is possible, please do tell mw how I should go about it. Thanks
