    what is wrong?

    I have a Human class that is derived publicly from a pure Player class.

    Player class includes <vector>
    Human class includes Player

    In the human class i define a function, which is not defined in Player class (this is just a function related to Human class alone... it has nothing to do with Player):
    Code:
    int  bet(vector<int>& availableBets, HINSTANCE hinstance);
    Code:
    int Human::bet(vector<int>& availableBets, HINSTANCE hinstance)
    {
    	//this function should pop up a modal dialog box
    	//so that the player can choose his bet
    
    	//get handles to all of the buttons to disable
    	//some if needed
    	
    	
    
    	_bet = (int)DialogBox(hinstance, //application instance
    	                  MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDD_ChooseBet), //style
    					  0, //parent
    					  (DLGPROC)ChooseBetProc //dialog procedure
    					  );
    }
    there is nothing wrong with the implementation but i got these error when compiling:

    error C2061: syntax error : identifier 'vector'
    error C2062: type 'int' unexpected
    error C2143: syntax error : missing ';' before '{'
    error C2447: '{' : missing function header (old-style formal list?)


    what is wrong?

    it worked!!!
    strange :S

    because in Player class, it has a function that takes a vector reference without an std!!

    thnx

    Perhaps you were "using namespace std;" in player.cpp but not in human.cpp, either way I like to always explicitly state std::
