C macros have no concept of c++ templates.

maybe you should ask the guys on comp.std.c++, since this might be a place where the language could need changing...

in the meantime, you could change it to look something like

do_create(Object);

#ifdef DEBUG
#define do_create(x) debug_create<x>(__LINE__,__FILE__)
#else
#define do_create(c) create<c>()
#endif

That's what I thought :/

I did just manage to hack it with this:

struct DebugCreator
{
DebugCreator(int line, const char* file) : line(line), file(file) {}
template<typename Object>
Object* create()
{
Object* obj = new Object;
track_object(obj, line, file);
return obj;
}
int line; const char* file;
};

#define create DebugCreator(__LINE__, __FILE__).create
