    Angry I know this sounds stupid.....

    I know this sounds really, really, stupid, and I've used this statement a lot on Visual C++, but this is how it works: I recently went to Xcode 2, and was trying to use new to allocate memory for my pointer, but Xcode didn't like it when I tried to compile! Said something about "new" being undeclared.

    These are the headers I'm using:

    Code:
    #include <stdlib.h>
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <string.h>
    #include <stdarg.h>

    I've never heard of Xcode 2. If it's a C++ compiler and it doesn't know what new is, I wouldn't use it.

    you shouldn't need any header files for new.

    Maybe its a C compiler?

    EDIT: Also those are outdated header files.
    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <string>
    using namespace std;

    lol.

    It sounds like you made a syntax error. Post the code.

    That. I forgot to mention that Xcode 2 is the only C++ compiler for the Mac OS X platform that's worth it. Made by Apple.

    No, there is nothing wrong with the code. I'm not that dumb as not to know how to use new.

    you shouldn't need any header files for new.
    Oh. Well I think it's probably some compiler setting that needs changing, because when I try to put any C++ specific code in there, the compiler doesn't like it.

    And no, it's not just a C compiler. I compiled a C++ program just the other day without any errors.

    Never mind. It works now. I just had to fool around enough with the compiler settings.
