c++ - using std::endl; doesn't work (for me).

When I change the code to "std::endl" (or '\n' , of course) it works fine.
I am using a -I\dm\stlport\stlport flag, and all the other using ...
statements work OK.
BTW these files have all compiled with Borland, g++, and mingGW without any
endl complaints.

I've been keeping an eye on that one. I think it has something to do with the "inline" directive and template functions. Walter has some examples, and when next beta appears I'll look at it again. Richard
