    Function - class ambiguity

    Two questions:
    1. I compiled my program and it worked but died when I ran it.

    I have several lines of code in the same main code block that read something like:
    Code:
    nsWordParse::csWord_Parse WP;
    rval = WP.initialize_vector(parm1);
    nsOtherNamespace::csOtherClass1 OC1;
    rval = OC1.initialize_vector(parm1, parm2);
    For whatever reason, if I right-click over "initialize_vector" of any of the above lines, I get a popup box listing all my "initialize_vector" functions from three different classes - each in a different namespace.

    My question is how can it be ambigious when I'm specifying a namespace and a class?

    Oh, I'm in MSVC++ 6.0

    Question 2.
    In MSVC++ 6.0,
    I have lines similar to :
    Code:
    std::string reallylongstr;
    reallylongstr = passed_parm;
    
    //set counters
    
    	while (!isalpha(reallylongstr[counter]) && (counter <= maxlen))
    				{
    				tempword = tempword + (*p).substr(counter, 1);
    				counter++;
    				std::cout<<tempword;
    				}
    I get "Error: overloaded operator not found." I try reallylongstr[2] in my watch window and get the same error.

    Ideas?

    I stopped trying to understand Visual C++ 6 and just got a better compiler. I'm much happier now.
    Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand.
