The following test case unexpectedly stops with an exception:


include <plist/plist++.h>

int main()


PList::Dictionary a;

PList::String b("Hello");

PList::String c("Hi!");

PList::Dictionary d;

a.Insert("Key", &b);

a.Insert("Another Key", &c);

std::cout << a.ToXml() << std::endl;

d.Insert("dictionary", &a); //CRAAAAAAAAASH!

std::cout << d.ToXml() << std::endl;

return 0;


/* Output:
