For the following template I am getting as error
error C2954: template definitions cannot nest

I am not able to get it.

template <class T> int
 FlexArray<T>::put( T data )
 {
      if ( N == Max ) grow(); // Create more space if necessary.
      Data[N]= data;
      return N++; // Return subscript at which item was stored.
 }

You generally have to put the function definition in the .h along with the class

e.g

template <class T> FlexArray
{
  int put( T data ) { if (...) };
};

your code is not sufficient to comment on it..

share the code for FlexArray declaration also..

you shall declare the functions outside the class declaration like how you have done, but both of them is expected to be in the same header file.

I recommend you leave the member function and it's implementation with in the class declaration.
It simplifies your code, and makes it easier for the compiler to accepted.  Especially if you're using a compiler like VC++ 6.0.

template <class T>
class FlexArray
{
 int put( T data )
 {
    if ( N == Max ) grow(); // Create more space if necessary.
    Data[N]= data;
    return N++; // Return subscript at which item was stored.
 }

};

The code needs to be in the header file any way, so you might as well put it in the class declaration.

I get no compile/linker errors for this code.. is your code like this??

#include <iostream.h>

template <class T>
class FlexArray
{
public:
      int put(T data);
};

template <class T>
int FlexArray<T>::put(T data)
{
      return 10;
}

void main()
{
      FlexArray<int> f;
      f.put(10);
}

FYI:
>>#include <iostream.h>

You should not use iostream.h
It's not part of the C++ standard, and therefor not portable.

Instead use extensionless version, which is part of the C++ standard.
#include <iostream>
