Compiler Error C2917

Error Message

'name' : invalid template-parameter

A template parameter list contains an identifier that was not a template parameter.


The following sample generates C2917.

// C2917.cpp
// compile with: /c
template<class T> class Vector {
   void sort();

template<class T*> void Vector<T>::sort() {}   // C2917
// try the following line instead
// template<class T> void Vector<T>::sort() {}
