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?

    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.
