I hate to continue this, I've been working with this a bit more and am running
into another compilation issue that is vague to me. I am now trying to put the
object Complex_Data into a vector in shared memory below and it is complaining
about the following:
error C2679: binary '=' : no operator found which takes a right-hand operand of
type 'const complex_data' (or there is no acceptable conversion)
1> c:\code\test.cpp(113):

Line 133 is the end of the complex data class (closing bracket) It seems that it
is expecting the class to have an assignment operator or copy constructor, I am
not sure. I appreciate any help you might have. I am kind of trying to follow
the container of container example but instead using a vector.
