[C++] Macro for set/get methods

I'm accessing a class XMLConfiguration  with a handful of get and set  methods.

    std::stringstream iss ( in );
    Poco::AutoPtr < Poco::Util::XMLConfiguration > ptrCfg
	    = new Poco::Util::XMLConfiguration ( iss );

//methods
	void setString(const std::string& key, const std::string& value);
	void setInt(const std::string& key, int value);
	void setDouble(const std::string& key, double value);
        // more ex: setBool

	double getDouble(const std::string& key) const;
	double getDouble(const std::string& key, double defaultValue) const;
	bool getBool(const std::string& key) const;		
	bool getBool(const std::string& key, bool defaultValue) const;
     //more

Need help (sample code) in creating macros such that I could do:
  SET ( key, value )
  double = GET ( key, value )

you will have to use an XML parser to read and write XML files. There are quite a few out there and it is up for debate which is the best one.

Here are a couple I'm familiar with

http://xerces.apache.org/xerces-c/
http://libxmlplusplus.sourceforge.net/docs/manual/html/


And a few more which I haven't tried
http://rapidxml.sourceforge.net/
http://sourceforge.net/projects/tinyxml/

I suggest you pick the one most suited to your needs after writing out simple sample programs

If I understood your Q. correctly, then you can do it as follows.
 
  #define GET_DBL(key, value) value = getDouble(key);
  #define SET_DBL(key, value) setDouble(key, value);
 
  #define GET_STR(key, value) value = getString(key);
  #define SET_STR(key, value) setString(key, value);
 
  #define GET_INT(key, value) value = getDouble(key);
  #define SET_INT(key, value) setInt(key, value);
 
  ..... likewise

#define GET_DBL(key, value) value = obj.getDouble(key);

class Sample {
public:
  double getDouble(const std::string& key) const {
      return 2.5;
  }
};

Sample obj;

int _tmain(int argc, _TCHAR* argv[])
{
      double d = 0.0;
            GET_DBL("Key", d);
            std::cout << d;
      return 0;
}

If functions are static, you can do as follows...
#define GET_DBL(key, value) value = Sample::getDouble(key);

class Sample {
public:
  static double getDouble(const std::string& key) const {
      return 2.5;
  }
};

int _tmain(int argc, _TCHAR* argv[])
{
      double d = 0.0;
            GET_DBL("Key", d);
            std::cout << d;
      return 0;
}

I misunderstood your question as one concerning XML parsing.

Asking experts to write code without attempting it yourself is generally not the norm on EE
