[aspectc-user] introductions into sourcefiles

Hello Martin,

here is an example:

aspect Foo {
   // introduction of the declaration into the class Body of Bar
   advice "Bar": void func();

// introduction of the implementation, e.g. into Bar.cc
advice "Bar" : void Foo::func() { ... }

Note that the aspect name "Foo" in "Foo::func" will be replaced by the 
target class name "Bar" in the generated code.

These "non-inline function introductions" only work if the target class 
already has a non-inline member function or a static data member, 
because the introduced non-inline function will be inserted into the 
same translation unit. If there is no such member, ac++ will stop with 
an error message.

It is rather likely that the *syntax* of non-inline introductions will 
change in one of the next ac++ releases. However, the feature will remain.

- Olaf
