Passing this into constructors for child classes
I'm looking to pass a pointer in to a constructor, to the class I'm instantiating it from. Something like this:
@Util::Util(Core * coar)
core = coar;
Problem is I keep getting segmentation faults when I do this. I think it may be related to the way I'm instantiating, since I had to set fpermissive in order to run this code:
@Util * util = Util(this);@
Can someone advise why I get this segfault and how I can either work around or fix the issue?
If you need fpermissive to compile, that means your code doesn't conform to the C++ standard.
We'll need more error messages and more code to be able to see what the issue is.
I think what you need to do is:
Util * util = new Util(this);
Note the "new"
