    GC you got those errors because you used a namespace and then didn't use

    std::cout

    you used

    cout.


    Heres the program i wrote to demonstrate how to use the header. i tried to post it yesterday to help answer inq's question bout namespace but it wouldn't let me:

    Code:
    /*	Steven Billington
    *	October 30, 2002
    *	ColorTest.cpp
    *
    *   petter-color.h allows you to use colors with cout in win32
    *   Copyright (c) 2002
    *
    *   petter-color.h made by Petter ("Sang-drax") Strandmark
    */
    
    /*	Preprocessor Directives*/
    #include <iostream.h>
    #include <windows.h>
    #include <petter-color.h>
    #include <stdlib.h>
    
    /*	Namespaces needed for correct functioning*/
    using namespace std;
    using namespace Petter;
    
    
    int main()
    {
    	/*	Examples of colored text*/
    	std::cout<<RED<<"This text is red.\n";
    	std::cout<<BLUE<<"This text is blue.\n";
    	std::cout<<WHITE<<"This text is white.\n";
    	std::cout<<GREEN<<"This text is green.\n";
    	std::cout<<NORMAL<<"\n";
    
    	system("pause");
    
    	/*	Good practice to return value for main*/
    	return 0;
    
    }

    I did something similar which might be easier for longer programs, I just dropped the "using namespace Petter" part and wrote:
    Code:
    cout<<Petter::BLUE<<"This text is blue"<<endl;
    cout<<Petter::RED<<"This text is red"<<endl;
    BTW, thanks Sang-drax for a great and useful header!

    Now I know what the error is.

    My color header works with the ostream class.
    However, there is two different ostream in most C++ compilers. One is called std::ostream, located in <iostream> and is the class you should use. The other one is just called ostream, located in <iostream.h> and is deprecated.

    My color header only works with std::ostream.

    (edit) Looks like R-o-D said pretty much the same thing...(/edit)

    The compiler shouldn't matter with this header.
