I have recently used the libpq++.a library as it stands to carry out SELECT
and INSERT command with few problems.
Its a pleasure to use, my compliments to you all. However...

I would now like to inherit the PgCursor class into one of my own classes.
Seems easy enough, but I have come up against a problem with the linker.

If I try to compile the code below with a simple makefile, the linker
(collect2) complains it cannot find the constructor for PgCursor. This is
true if I try to inherit from any of the classes in the libpq++.a library.
The linker output is shown below.

What am I doing wrong? If I comment out the declaration of 'newPgCursor
causesLinkErrors', then the code builds and works perfectly!

Are there link options I need to consider if I want to inherit from the
I have tried building my own libraries and inheriting from them, using a
similar make file, but they work fine.

This has kept me going round in circles for a good few days now.
I would REALLY appreciate some suggestions, I seem to be getting nowhere!
