Subject warning: has virtual functions but non-virtual destructor
Date Tue, 18 Jul 2006 09:40:35 GMT
I have written a small application using log4cxx (log4cxx 0.9.7), the code
snippet is:

   string logpropertiesfile;


When I compile with g++ -Wall (g++ 3.4.5), I get a lot of warning, all of
the form:

/home/ambarish/log4cxx/include/log4cxx/helpers/class.h:53: warning: `class
log4cxx::helpers::Class' has virtual functions but non-virtual destructor

Can anyone please provide pointers why these warnings comes? I would think
this is a basic thing in CPP, a class with virtual functions should have a
virtual destructor, otherwise there is a chance of memory leak. Is there a
way to solve this problem from the application perspective?
