    Having an ofstream in the private data of a class

    Hey everyone,

    VC++ is givin me errors like
    Code:
     error C2146: syntax error : missing ';' before identifier '_fileStream1'
    error C2501: 'ofstream' : missing storage-class or type specifiers
    because of the line
    Code:
     ofstream _fileStream1;
    which is in the private data section of my FileWriter class. I've attached the code below but i think i have included what i need to, is there somethin more about ofstreams that i need to know?

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <fstream>
    #include <string>
    
    class FileWriter  
    {
    public:
    	FileWriter(char* file_path /*name of file to be written*/); 
    
    	void write(char* item_name, int item_number);
    
    private:
    
    	ofstream _fileStream1;
    };

    ...
    private:
    
    	std:: ofstream _fileStream1;
    };
