Compiler Warning (level 1) C4812

Error Message

obsolete declaration style: please use 'new_syntax' instead

In the current release of Visual C++, the explicit constructor specialization is still supported, but it may not be supported in a future release.

The following sample generates C4812:

// C4812.cpp
// compile with: /W1 /c
template <class T> 
class MyClass;

template<class T>
class MyClass<T*> {

template<class T>
MyClass<T*>::MyClass<T*>() {}   // C4812
// try the following line instead
// MyClass<T*>::MyClass() {}
