But i also accept the fact that i may have missed some point in this article...
This solution is enough in some situations. In others, you will need inheritance, and in some more complicated situations, you will have to resort to class aliases. That's what I failed to make perfectly clear in my article.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
