Template-Based Programming

The last C++ program I wrote was long before templates became part of the language. Ted Neward writes...

There's a tremendous amount of power in template-based languages.
I have no idea what this implies for C++. I can agree that it's true for Lisp though.

Programming macros in Lisp perhaps has at least something in common with programming templates in C++. Where you go from there is up to you. I hope never to write another line of C++ even with templates.
