Hello I am learning templates and at the moment I have created a templated QuickSort function. It's rather short and self explanatory. However during the call to the QuickSort Driver function I get a No matching call error. I have detailed the error message in full at the bottom of the post. Thank you.

QuickSort.h

```
#ifndef QuickSort_H
#define QuickSort_H
#include <cstdlib>
#include <iostream>
#include <vector>
using namespace std;
//QUICKSORT DRIVER
template <class Comparable>
void quickSort(vector<Comparable> & a)
{
quickSort( a, 0, a.size( )-1 ); <---ERROR COMES FROM THIS CALL I'VE DETERMINED
}
//RECURSIVE QUICKSORT FUNCTION
template <class Comparable>
void quickSort(vector<Comparable> & arr, int left, int right) {
int swaps=0;
int i = left, j = right;
int tmp;
int pivot = arr[(left + right) / 2];
for(int i=left; i<right+1; i++)
{
cout << arr[i] << endl;
}
/* partition */
while (i <= j)
{
while (arr[i] < pivot) //INCREASES I UNTIL NUMBER GREATER THAN PIVOT
{
i++;
}
while (arr[j] > pivot) //DECREASES J UNTIL NUMBER LESS THAN PIVOT
{
j--;
}
if (i <= j)
{
//SWAPS INDEXES
tmp = arr[i];
arr[i] = arr[j];
arr[j] = tmp;
if(i!=j)
{
swaps++;
}
i++;
j--;
}
}
if(swaps==0)
{
return;
}
/* recursion */
if (left < j)
quickSort(arr, left, j);
if (i < right)
quickSort(arr, i, right);
}
template <class Comparable>
void checkSort( const vector<Comparable> & a )
{
for( int i = 0; i < a.size( ); i++ )
if( a[ i ] != i )
{
cout << "Error at " << i << " " << a[i] << endl;
}
else
{
cout << "Success at " << i << " " << a[i] << endl;
}
cout << "Finished checksort" << endl;
}
#endif
```

Next is my Main TestQuickSort.cpp

```
#include "QuickSort.h"
int main(){
const int NUM_ITEMS = 10;
vector<int> a( NUM_ITEMS );
for( int i = 0; i < a.size( ); i++ )
{
a[ i ] = (a.size()-1)-i;
}
for( int i =0; i<a.size( ); i++ )
{
cout << a[i] << endl;
}
quickSort( a ); <-------THIS IS THE CALL THAT GIVES ME THE ERROR
checkSort( a );
system("PAUSE");
return 0;
}
```

I have marked the lines which I determined is the problem. In the main when I call quickSort(a); I get a no matching function for call to quickSort(std::vector<int, std;;allocator<int> > &, int, unsigned int). If i call the function as quickSort( a, 0, a.size( )-1 ) from the main it compiles with no problems. But when I call the driver function that calls the recursive function I get that error.

I have tried calling it as quickSort<int>(a); after researching some topics on templates and that also does not work. I also attempted to declare quickSort<Comparable>( a, 0, a.size( )-1 ); from the driver function but that also does not work. If anyone has anything else I can try thank you, It's probably something very simple im overlooking but I can't see it for my life apparently.

Edit for clarification: Errors are on line 12 for QuickSort.h and line 21 for TestQuickSort.cpp

EDIT AGAIN: I've also determined this compiles on my Dev C++ ide but the error mainly comes from when I try to use a linux system and make file to compile the program from a terminal I have also added the makefile snippet but I don't think I did anything wrong there

`TestQuickSort.exe: TestQuickSort.cpp QuickSort.h

g++ TestQuickSort.cpp QuickSort.h -o TestQuickSort.exe`
