A problem with overloading << (compiler = djgpp)

1: #include <iostream>
2:
3: typedef struct {
4: double r;
5: double i;
6: } complex;
..
..
..
24: ostream & operator<< (ostream &str, const complex &a)
25: {
26: s << "(" << a.r << " + i" << a.i ")";
27: return s;
28: }

when compiled with gcc:
gcc complex.cc

complex.cc:24: syntax error before `&' token

I think this error has something to do with that 'ostream'. I have #included
<iostream>, so that should not cause this?

That is C style code, its not wrong but in C++ we prefer

struct complex {
double r;
double i;
};

You are forgetting that ostream is in the std namespace.

std::ostream & operator<< (std::ostream &str, const complex &a)

Also look at

using std::ostream;

or

using namespace std;

I'm using an XSLT transform to output the element value contents from a simple XML file into a new .TXT file. Everything works fine except for certain XML files, when calling msxsl with the .xslt, I get the following error: Code: 0xc00ce504 File: ...... Line: ... Column: ... A name was started with an invalid character. The error refers to the '<' found in the string "<20" from my example xml file below (a).

This program should copy one file onto the other. It works if I compile it with gcc to a cygwin program. However, if I compile it with the -mno-cygwin option, it doesn't work (this targets native windows). Anyway, I just want to check that the program is valid before I see if I can find a way around a compiler bug. It might be something simple that I am doing wrong.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it. Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...
