    Using STL List

    When I compile this code.

    Code:
    #include <list>
    
    main() {
    
         list <int> numlist;
    
    }

    I get an error, "list is undeclared identifier".

    All the examples of using the list show this to be correct, do I need to download or update my copy of STL or something? Or are there other headers I must include?

    Im using MSVC 6 with SP5


    Any feedback is appreciated.

    try this:

    Code:
    #include <list>
    
    main() {
    
        std::list <int> numlist;
    
    }
    I usually typdef anything vectors, list and thing which hide in namespace std;
    Couldn't think of anything interesting, cool or funny - sorry.

    or you could do this:

    Code:
    #include<list>
    
    using std::list;
    
    int main()
    { list<int> numList;
    
      return(0);
    }
    or even:
    Code:
    #include<list>
    using namespace std;
    
    int main()
    { list<int> numList;
    
      return(0);
    }
    those two methods or endo's are all acceptable, your choice just depends on your preference, i personally get sick of doing std::list, std::string, std::vector and the sort so normally just use a using std::.... .
