Linkage in Names with Class Scope

 

For the latest documentation on Visual Studio 2017 RC, see Visual Studio 2017 RC Documentation.

The following linkage rules apply to names with class scope:

  • Static class members have external linkage.

  • Class member functions have external linkage.

  • Enumerators and typedef names have no linkage.

Microsoft Specific

  • Functions declared as friend functions must have external linkage. Declaring a static function as a friend generates an error.

END Microsoft Specific
