In VC6 I can't specialize on the template greater<> from STL?
Read the above question history, and let me know what you think about it....

when you are using tamplate functions or class's
u should write before them
template<class t>

i mean if you"ll take stack.h
there is a class stack
then if i want to make a stack of int i should write:

stack<int> S;//stack of int's

and in the h file

is writen
template<class T>
class stack{
....
};

i hope i understood your question right
and answer it

Hi ntdragon,

This is about template (partial) specialization:

template<typename T1, typename T2>
class A
{
    // general template
};

template<typename T>
class A<T, T*>
{
   // specialization for instances where T2 has type T1*
};

So here is the answer; place the specialization in  namespace  std

namespace std {
   template<> class greater<const char*>
   {
       public: bool operator()(const char* p1, const char* p2) const  {/*Your implementation*/}
    };
};

Any ideas why it must be in namespace std?
Why cant I just specialize after
using namespace std....
