Can I have a static std::queue ?

I'm trying to declare a static std::queue

static queue<myObject*> TheQueue;

This gets a parsing error...

My ultimate goal: A static array of queues

static queue<myObject*> TheQueue[10];

but this gets the same paring error.

Any ideas?

Please post more of your code, this is probably just a simple syntax problem.

struct Buffer{
      int Length;
      char* TheBuffer;

class RString

      //Static Stuff
      static queue<Buffer*> DeadQueue;       // <--- Errors here  
      static Buffer* CurrentBuffer;

      //Instance Stuff
      char* buffer;
      unsigned int BufferLength;

  ... boring stuff... (functions)


Compiler Errors:
 error C2143: syntax error : missing ';' before '<'
 error C2238: unexpected token(s) preceding ';'
Does adding

using namespace std;

after the STL includes help? At least it looks like that. You could of ccourse also try

     static std::queue<Buffer*> DeadQueue;

I get this error when using  static std::queue<Buffer*> DeadQueue;
error C2039: 'queue' : is not a member of 'std'

I get the same errors as above when using namespace std; is inserted up top - I think it was already 'active' though, i had that in a different file in the project already.

I think the compiler is getting goofed up with the 'static'
Do you also

#include <queue>

oxygen_728Author Commented:
#include <queue>   was the trick.

After solving some very painful linker issues (which involved shutting off pre-compiled headers), I got it working.

Thanks for the help JKR
