decl - identifiers

I used standard Unix C++ compiler with the <complex.h> header file. This allows me to use the complex abstract data type in the main program.

Okay, but when I use the same program, after changing the necessary library file names for use on the MSDEV Visual C++ environment, I get the "unknown decl - identifiers" error message for the the ADT type "complex". It is accepted under the Unix compiler, but not under the MSDEV compiler.

xyu --> my code is about a thousand lines. So I can attach an email to you if you give me your e-mail address.

Did you try to #include <complex> (without .h)?

Which version of VC?  VC5 puts the standard libary in the std namespace, so you'll need to qualify those names with std.  Try using std::complex.

Try copying the <complex.h> from the UNIX include directory into the source directory of the WINDOWS machine and compile.

As eric_m pointed out, if you are using VC5 complex will be inside the std namespace.
If that is the case, then you can either use std::complex or to avoid qualifying complex you can type:

using namespace std;

You will then not need to qualify complex (and all other identifiers in std) for the rest of the translation unit.

Please note that qualifying with std:: is the 'prefered' solution as it avoids identifier collisions.
