Abstract Classes

Question:
Can I instantiate an abstract class?

Answer:
No, you cannot instantiate an abstract class. However, you can declare a pointer or a reference to it:


class Abs
{
public:
  virtual void Perform() = 0; //pure virtual
};
class Derived: public Abs
{
public:
void Perform() {/*..*/}

}


void func(Abs& derived); //reference to abstract
int main()
{
  Abs * p = new Derived; //pointer to abstract 
  func(*p);
}
