    Strongly typed collections

    I'm attempting to create a strongly typed collection of Vehicle objects in C++. I've been pondering why this won't compile for awhile and I can't figure it out. Anybody?

    Code:
    #ifndef VEHICLECOLLECTION_H
    #define VEHICLECOLLECTION_H
    
    #include <list>
    
    class VehicleCollection
    {
    public:
    	VehicleCollection();
    	~VehicleCollection(void);
    private:
    	list<Vehicle> lst;
    };
    
    #endif
    Error:
    error C2143: syntax error : missing ';' before '<'

    Two problems. First, you must use std::list instead of just list. Second, there is no declaration or definition of the Vehicle type, and no include of a header in which Vehicle is declared.

    Awesome, thank you! I was getting a weird error when I had a destructor for Vehicle. Once I removed it, everything compiled ok.

    Code:
    #ifndef VEHICLECOLLECTION_H
    #define VEHICLECOLLECTION_H
    
    #include <list>
    #include "Vehicle.h"
    
    class VehicleCollection
    {
    public:
    	VehicleCollection();
    	~VehicleCollection(void);
    private:
    	std::list<Vehicle> lst;
    };
    
    #endif
