    Re: what is the use of PUBLIC_DECL here and what is it?

    I suspect that PUBLIC_DECL is a definition defined elsewhere (in a header file?) and could possibly be
    __declspec(dllexport)
    or
    __declspec(dllimport)

    depending upon whether the class is being imported from a dll or exported from a dll.
    All advice is offered in good faith only. All my code is tested (unless stated explicitly otherwise) with the latest version of Microsoft Visual Studio (using the supported features of the latest standard) and is offered as examples only - not as production quality. I cannot offer advice regarding any other c/c++ compiler/IDE or incompatibilities with VS.

    I believe you should learn how to search for symbol definitions in Visual Studio. Or try with general Find-in-Files by Ctrl-Shift-F.
