Hi.  I am trying to add the std::map and std::string types to my project.  All I did was add the following to the top of one of my header files:

#include <string>
#include <map>
using namespace std;

I get hundereds of errors and warning. Some of the errors look like:

warning C4002: too many actual parameters for macro 'move'
c:\program files\microsoft visual studio\vc98\include\iosfwd(110) : error C2061: syntax error : identifier 'stdscr'
        c:\program files\microsoft visual studio\vc98\include\iosfwd(135) : see reference to class template instantiation 'std::char_traits<_E>' being compiled
c:\program files\microsoft visual studio\vc98\include\iosfwd(159) : warning C4002: too many actual parameters for macro 'move'
c:\program files\microsoft visual studio\vc98\include\iosfwd(159) : error C2061: syntax error : identifier 'stdscr'
c:\program files\microsoft visual studio\vc98\include\iosfwd(198) : warning C4002: too many actual parameters for macro 'move'
c:\program files\microsoft visual studio\vc98\include\iosfwd(198) : error C2061: syntax error : identifier 'stdscr'
etc................

Does anybody have any idea why this would happen?  Thanks.

Mixing MFC and STL can be a major headache. See http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;143207 ("PRB: Common Problems When Using STL with STD Namespace") and the ALLINONE sample at http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/vcsample/html/_sample_com_allinone.asp

Ok.. I found the problem.  It was the order in which I was including things.  I was including some PDCurses header files and I needed to include those after the STL includes.  Thanks for your help
