>From the documentation:

>The C++ built-in dynamic_cast can be used for downcasts and crosscasts of
pointers to polymorphic objects, but error notification in the form of a
>returned value of 0 is inconvenient to test, or worse yet, easy to forget
to test. The polymorphic_cast template performs a dynamic_cast, and throws
an >exception if the dynamic_cast returns 0.

what is the difference between this and

dynamic_cast<Derived&>( *obj ) ?
