    Problem with #include <list>

    I have installed NetBeans 6.7.1 IDE and Cygwin.

    I have a c++ class file and as soon as I add
    Code:
    #include <list>
    I get a ton of errors:

    Code:

    I would appreciate greatly if someone could tell me how to make these errors go away.

    This sounds like a problem with your installation above anything else. I would ask for support with your Cygwin installation on their support forums.

    What you didn't mention was what C++ compiler you have set up. Judging by your file paths you've got the GNU C++ compiler. It could be that installation as well. I would ask around in the GNU support documentation and their mailing list for support.

    Where are you adding that include? Post the surrounding code... it might be inside a class or something scary.

    The other possibility is that you've used some option that causes compilation as C, not as C++ (eg using gcc, not g++). C-only compilers tend to complain rather bitterly when they are forced to parse the contents of C++ standard headers (or any other C++-specific code).
    Right 98% of the time, and don't care about the other 3%.

    If I seem grumpy or unhelpful in reply to you, or tell you you need to demonstrate more effort before you can expect help, it is likely you deserve it. Suck it up, Sunshine, and read this, this, and this before posting again.
