Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Thread: [C++] String type

  1. #1

    [C++] String type

    In PpmReader.cpp, I have:
    #include "PpmReader.h"
    PpmReader::PpmReader() {
    	textureID = 0;
    // line 26
    int PpmReader::load(string filename) { 
            // some stuff
    In PpmReader.h, I have:
    #ifndef PPMREADER_H
    #define PPMREADER_H
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <malloc.h>
    #include <string>
    #include <GL/glut.h>
    class PpmReader {
    		GLuint textureID; 
    		int load(string filename);
    I get this error:
    PpmReader.cpp(26) : error C2065: 'string' : undeclared identifier
    Why? Didn't I include the string library?

  2. #2
    C++'s string datatype is String
    If you notice this notice you will notice that this notice is not worth noticing.

    Actually, I forgot to do "using namespace std". C++ works with lowercase string. I believe that Java uses uppercase string.

    1) You shouldn't "use namespace std;" and pollute the global namespace. Instead you should fully qualify your use of string:
    std::string foo;
    2) Why have you put so many include files in your header file? You should put as many includes as possible in your cpp files (as "best practice") for quite a few reasons.
