To use Loki, simply extract the files from the archive, give your compiler access to their include path:

  • if you have a standard conforming compiler use "loki/include/loki" or "loki/include" for "#include " usage

  • if you have a non-conforming compiler use "loki/include/noncc/loki" or "loki/include/noncc" for "#include " usage. The noncc files are declared as 'deprecated' and will be removed in future. They are also not updated with the new features of Loki and bugfixes (unless YOU do it).

If you use the small object allocator directly or indirectly (through the Functor class) you must add src/SmallObj.cpp to your project/makefile.

If you use Singletons with longevity you must add src/Singleton.cpp to your project/makefile.

If you use OrderedStatic.h with you must add src/OrderedSataic.cpp to your project/makefile.

Or use the library generated by make.msvc.bat, make.mingw.bat, or make.


Supported Compilers: Gcc v3.4 Gcc v4.0 Gcc v4.1 Microsoft Visual C++ v7.1 Microsoft Visual C++ v8.0

by special noncc files: Borland C++ Builder v6.0 Microsoft Visual C++ v6.0 Microsoft Visual C++ v7.0 see also readme.txt files

Mostly Supported: CodeWarrior 6.0

CodeWarrior has a problem with the Conversion template (see TypeManip.h) and, though it compiles it, it doesn't provide correct results. Consequently, the DerivedToFront algorithm in Typelist.h does not function. This affects the static dispatcher in Multimethods.h. As a fix, you must order the types (putting the most derived ones in the front) when providing the typelist argument to StaticDispatcher.
