    Exclamation HELP ME ABOUT string

    This code doesn't compile and i couldn't find why.
    I work in visual c++ environment.
    It gives these family of errors:

    *syntax error : missing ';' before '->'
    *'root' : missing storage-class or type specifiers
    *'root' : 'int' differs in levels of indirection from 'class data *'


    Thanks a lot for helping

    data::data(){};
    main(){
    data *root=new data();
    (root->myname)="/";
    return 0;
    }

    It compiled for me. I think I remember some problem with some versions of MSVC and the string header. You could try getting the latest service pack or try re-arranging the order in which you include the headers.
