Different languages deal with this problem in different ways:
- C++ (Java) have powerful enough template (generics) system which can
handle this problem in most cases (personally, I like Java generics -
they are pretty simple and not confusing like C++ templates; otoh, C++
templates allow you to blow up your own leg, as well as lot of other
- in Eiffel, this is know problem of catcalls - here's some food for
thought on this matter:
