Class Members and Their Values

Question:
I want to get the member names of a class and their values by names. Is this possible with C++ alone or do I need a tool for this?

Answer:
Normally, class member names are not stored in the compiled program and cannot be retrieved. That's the way it should be; otherwise, compiled programs would be too large. If you did need this for some reason, you would have to add the code to store and retrieve those member names. There is no magic to that, but everything would need to be written out. Note that OLE does this when writing OLE components for Win32 but that won't help if that's not what you're developing.
