Virtual Function Tables
A virtual function table is an array of pointers to the methods an object
supports. If you're using C, an object appears as a structure whose first member is
a pointer to the virtual function table (lpVtbl
); that is, the first member points to an array containing function pointers.
The methods all take a pointer to the function table as the first parameter.
Thus, the following example calls the Read
method of a pStream
In C+ +, the pointer to the virtual function table, the this
pointer, is implicit. The following is equivalent to the previous example
when using C+ +:
