I'm in the early stages of trying to understand boost::intrusive::list'
so forgive me if I'm just doing something stupid!! Using VS2019 I wrote
a small demo app which uses 'boost::intrusive::list_base_hook<>':-

     #include <boost/intrusive/list.hpp>
     #include <string>
     #include <iostream>

     using namespace std;

     class animal : public boost::intrusive::list_base_hook<>
         animal (string n, int l) : name{move(n)}, legs{l} {}

         string name;
         int legs;

     using animal_list = boost::intrusive::list<animal>;

     template<typename T>
     void print_list (const boost::intrusive::list<T>& elem)
         for (const T& a : elem)
             cout << "A " << << " has " << a.legs << " legs" << '\n';

     int main()
         animal a1{"dog", 4};
         animal a2{"spider", 6};
         animal a3{"budgie", 2};
         animal_list animals;

         print_list (animals);

         return 0;

Everything runs fine and I see the expected output but I've noticed that
some other developers use something called a 'list_member_hook' rather
than my 'list_base_hook' - so class animal would look like this:-

     class animal
         animal (string n, int l) : name{move(n)}, legs{l} {}

         string name;
         int legs;
         boost::intrusive::list_member_hook<> _animal_hook;

and then later on in the program there'd be a couple of lines looking
something like this:-

     typedef boost::intrusive::member_hook<animal,
boost::intrusive::list_member_hook<>, &animal::_animal_hook>
     typedef boost::intrusive::list<animal, AnimalHookOption> Animals;

But when I try that here, VS2019 throws up this compiler error:-

     error C2039: 'default_list_hook': is not a member of 'animal'

Can anyone explain what I'm doing wrong??
