__asm int 3 in template function ( in VC6 )

We usually use __asm int 3 in the code to hard code break points. But have you tried setting a __asm int 3 in a template function? Like…

template<class T> int Testfunc( T Obj )
__asm int 3;
return Obj++;

void main()
Testfunc( 1 );

The above code will never get compiled in vc6. It will generate the below error

(compiler file ‘msc1.cpp’, line 1794)
Please choose the Technical Support command on the Visual C++ Help menu, or open the Technical Support help file for more information
Generating Code…Command line warning D4028 : minimal rebuild failure, reverting to normal build
Error executing cl.exe.”

But the same code will compile fine in later versions of visual studio. Seems they have fixed the bug 🙂
