I am having conflicts compiling with the built in complex class and ostream definitions. The errors are all of the type:

: error C2371: 'ostream' : redefinition; different basic types

and
: error C2784: ...

Here is a sample of how the code is set up and results in the same type errors that I am getting ( under a Win32 console application in MS VC++ version 5.0:

#include <complex>
#include <iostream.h>
using namespace std;

void main( void )
{
   complex<double> temp(1.0, -1.0);
   cout << "Test " << temp.real() << '\t' << temp.imag()
        << endl;
}

Thanks for any assistance.

hey
you should really show us how you write that.

with the little you wrote, when using a header file and not pointing the .h, you should include "using namespace std;" below:

#include <complex>
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

or

#include <complex>
using namespace std;

#include <iostream.h>

but not what you wrote

It should be OK. Install the Service Pack 3 of Visual C++ 5.0.
