I have a question about implementation of shared_ptr when used to store
classes with inheritance.

I have a shared pointer to an abstract class and would like to convert
it to a pointer to the derived class. Is there a way to do this already?

If not, I would be interested in any ideas of an implementation that
would do this.

Your suggestions are greatly appreciated,

Martin Bosticky
