c++ member function hides global function


This Content is from Stack Overflow. Question asked by Immanuel Kant

This code snippet doesn’t compile:

struct M {
    int i;
    int j;

void f(M& m) {

struct N {
    M m;
    void f(int i) {
        f(m); // compilation error

clang says : No viable conversion from 'M' to 'int'
Seems my member function hides global function.

I changed the error line into ::f(m) to help name resolution, but still fails. Does it mean that in c++ member function, cannot call global overload function with same name but different parameter list?

How to fix this?
