Um, the same way you do with any other operator. :-)

Do you know anything about operator overloading?

You can't overload the "->*" operator (and the ".*" operator).
To overload the "->" operator of class X, you write:

class X
{
public:
    X* operator->() {/* your code here */}
};

For examples, see my smart pointer classes at http://www.kinetica.com/home/yon/4dev/ .

this is my case:

template<class T>
class foo
{
private:
      T* t;
public:
      T* operator ->()
      {
            return( t );
      }
};

thanks !

The operator "->*" can implemented the same as "->"
