    Code:
    #pragma hdrstop
    #pragma argsused
    #include <stdlib.h>
    #include <iostream.h>
    #include <fstream.h>
    #include <math.h>
    #include <sstream>
    
    using namespace std;
    when i compile in unix i get an error that says:

    sstream : No such file or directory

    im using sstream to perform string parsing in my code...works perfectly in Borland C++...won't compile on UNIX and i have to submit the code in UNIX...

    nevermind...i submitted the assignment...

    hk_mp5kpdw, since you suggested the sstream thing...could you please post a possible way around the above problem...you method works perfectly in Borland C++ but in UNIX i couldn't get rid of the above error...i tried copying the file from Borland's directory into the unix project folder...doesn't work!

    i hate UNIX...second assignment down the drain cause of it...why is it so preferred anyway...pathetic interface to program on...since i was getting the above error i commented out the part where i was using the stream buffer etc...and used my previous code...now it gives me a straight in your face segmentation fault...the same thing it would give me in my previous project although ive put massive tests in the code just to prevent some wrong accesses etc...worthless junk! I swear...

    Regards,

    There is a version of stringstreams that I think works with character streams instead of std::strings. As an example, I think it would go like:

    Code:
    #include <strstream>
    #include <iostream>
    
    int main()
    {
        char word[] = "Hello World";
        char temp[20];
        std::istrstream parser(word);
        while( parser >> temp )
            std::cout << temp << std::endl;
    }
    Should output:
    Code:
    Hello
    World
    If that doesn't work, you might try the older version of that strstream header:

    Code:
    #include <strstrea.h>
    #include <iostream>
    
    int main()
    {
        char word[] = "Hello World";
        char temp[20];
        istrstream parser(word);
        while( parser >> temp )
            std::cout << temp << std::endl;
    }

    I always doubt the skill of people that complain about their environment too much... I've been programming on windows for at least 2-3 years, and I made a jump to linux ~1 year ago... now, with the exception of non-standard stuff, I can write code that will compile fine on both windows and linux...

    this is why you need to learn the standards... it'll help you out in this kind of situation... the biggest trouble you'll have with coding windows/linux is OS/compiler specific. the compiler-specific stuff can be weeded out by using GCC, or a MingW port thereof (dev-c++ for windows). the OS stuff you'll just have to deal with or move to JAVA...

    Actually I have found that using a combo of vim and make on linux to be far superior to any windows enviroment.

    Reasons:
    • Extreme control over file dependicies. Having to set them yourself re-enforces the structure in your mind
    • VIM is the single best editor I've ever used.
    • Debugger that actually works. I have yet to find a window's based debugger that worked well. gdb has worked every single time I gone to use it.
    • gcc/g++ can easily be told to disallow anything that is not standard.
    • I can alt-tab to another ssh session faster then I can move a mouse. For me the lack of mouse interface is great.
    • Linux doesn't allow fflush(stdin);

    ya i guess skill's a big factor...i haven't really programmed a lot on Unix...i was just annoyed because of the assignment deal yesterday...and the fact that i have to connect to unix on my university LAN and the only interface is a black screen with lines in white...it's hard to stare at something like that for a whole month...

    anyway thanks for the replies...ill keep all this in mind for programs i make later!
