    Using STL with Microsoft Visual Studio C++ 6?

    I've tried using SGI's STL with MSVC++ 6, but it failed miserably.

    Basically, I'm making a Win32 console app that requires the Vector, String, and Set classes. Are these classes built-in to MSVC++ 6, or available for download from any place other than SGI?

    Reason I'm asking:

    Code:
    #include <iostream.h>
    #include <fstream.h>
    #include <io.h>
    #include <vector>
    
    void quickSort();
    
    int main(int argc, char* argv[]) {
    	if (argc == 1) {
    		cout<<"ERROR:\tNo input file specified.\n";
    	}
    
    	
    	if (access(argv[1], 00)) {
    		cout<<"ERROR:\tThe input file does not exist.\n";
    	}
    	ifstream inputFile(argv[1]);
    	// Do all the input stuff
    
    	vector<int> vec;  
    	for (int i(0); i < 4; i++) {
    		vec.push_back(i);
    	}
    	for (int i(0); i < vec.size(); i++) {
    		cout<<vec[i];
    	}
    	inputFile.close();
    
    	// Process the input
    	// Sort the input
    
    	ofstream outputFile("output.txt");
    	// Do all the output stuff
    	outputFile.close();
    
    	return(0);
    }
    
    void quickSort() {
    	cout<<"Sort.\n";
    }
    produces:
    Code:
    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\MyProjects\td2sql\td2sql.cpp(22) : error C2065: 'vector' : undeclared identifier
    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\MyProjects\td2sql\td2sql.cpp(22) : error C2062: type 'int' unexpected

    Try 'std::vector' instead of just 'vector'

    d0h. So used to C++ in an older version of the g++ compiler ... no namespaces necessary there

    Thanks
