#include "std_lib_facilities.h"
using namespace std;

class B1
{
public:
virtual void vf() { cout << "B1::vf" << endl; }
void f() { cout << "B1::f" << endl; }
};

class D1 : public B1
{
public:
void vf() { cout << "D1::vf" << endl; }
};

void call(B1& b1_ref) {
b1_ref.vf();
b1_ref.f();
}

int main()
try
{
D1 d1;
call(d1);

keep_window_open();
}
catch (exception& e) {
cout << e.what() << endl;
return 1;
}
catch (…) {
cout << "Exiting" << endl;
return 2;
}

Output:
