|Well I tried to reply to that question, yet the server kept saying that there was some problem, I couldn't even start typing out the reply.
Luke: Have a look at "Static Member variables" and how to use them.
for the thing about '#include <list>' check out http://www.codeguru.com/forum/showthread.php?t=344569 . Pretty much the STL containers all don't have '.h' as an extension. Reason told was that the non-extension headers are contained within a namespace, the .h ones are not, and then will be added to the global namespace.
I'm pretty sure with static member variables you need to do...
C++ is great, if you learn it. "Industry Standard", Oh yeah, and for a good reason, actually several! As you can see I like C++ :P It's good to you if you treat it right you just need to give it a little love and it'll give you a little love. Though best if we don't get into a C++ vs Java battle, I have actually done some Java (J2ME), it's nice, but I'll always go back to C++.
