// another C++ implicit template instantiation example

#include <iostream>

using namespace std;


template <class any_data_type>

any_data_type MyMax(any_data_type Var1, any_data_type Var2)


return Var1 > Var2 ? Var1:Var2;



// do some testing

int main(void)


int p;

char q;


p = MyMax(100, 200);

q = MyMax('k','K');


// implicit instantiation of MyMax(int, int)

cout<<"MyMax(100, 200) = "<<p<<endl;

// implicit instantiation of MyMax(char, char)

cout<<"MyMax('k', 'K') = "<<q<<endl;

return 0;



Output examples:


MyMax(100, 200) = 200

MyMax('k', 'K') = k
