I want to implement an allocator for the list to use some piece of my code in element destructor. I mean, I want to run my code when allocator runs destroy() for the list element. I have tried to inherit default allocator, but I can't execute my method destroy(pointer) case its not virtual in base class. Any solvements? Or maybe I need to write whole allocator? Or best: how to implement my task?

Allocator classes aren't designed to be inherited from. They contain typedefs. Unless you change those typedefs too, inheriting from the base allocator won't help you in the least.

What part of the implementation do you have trouble with?

I don't know from what to start writing an allocator.

I'm creating objects w/ new. After that I put there pointers into list. And when I'm deleting list's element, or when list is deleting I want that its destructor run delete for my objects.
