Executive Summary

Every C++ programmer has had one of those days: A simple use of a template library turns into a nightmare, with pages upon pages of error messages streaming out of the compiler. Somewhere in that proverbial haystack are the clues the programmer will need to determine exactly what went wrong - an error about a missing + operator here, an incompatible type assignment there - but the programmer knows he is in for a long search through the grisly internals of the template library, or a visit from the local C++ template guru. This paper is not about C++ template error messages, but they are indicative of a far more general problem with the C++ template system.
