c++.stl.port - Error and warning with STL

reply dkh <thanks nospam.com> writes:
Warning: C:\DM\BIN\..\STL\port\stlport\stl/_string_io.h(96): non-const
reference initialized to temporary
Error: C:\DM\BIN\..\STL\port\stlport\stl/_string_io.h(96): cannot
generate copy constructor for class 'istream' because of private 'ios'

My SC.INI file has CFLAGS=-Ae -Ab. I included the STL directory first in
the INCLUDE variable. I have tried both the .zip and the release .gz
versions of STLport from the web site. They both give the same result.

I'm pretty pleased with DM and consider it a bargian at $25.00US.

If you are trying to use the iostreams that come with STL you may get 
this problem.

I would suggest using the old iostreams that comes with the compiler.

If you still have a problem, can you post example code that causes the 
error message to occur.

Apparently, a function name collided somehow. The error message did not
help me much, in this case. Especially since I'm a total beginner.

This works...

#include <iostream>
#include <string>

void my_getline( istream& is, string& s, char d='\n' );

int main() {
	string selectionString;

	cout << "Please enter the text to search for: ";
	my_getline( cin, selectionString );

	return 0;
}

void my_getline( istream& is, string& s, char d ) {
	fflush(stdin);
	char getbuff[512];
	is.getline(getbuff,512, d);
	s = getbuff;
}
----------------------------------------------------------------

This does not work...

#include <iostream>
#include <string>

void getline( istream& is, string& s, char d='\n' );

int main() {
	string selectionString;

	cout << "Please enter the text to search for: ";
	getline( cin, selectionString );

	return 0;
}

void getline( istream& is, string& s, char d ) {
	fflush(stdin);
	char getbuff[512];
	is.getline(getbuff,512, d);
	s = getbuff;
}

Thanks for your reply. Any light you can shed would be appreciated.
