Is it possible in C++ to declare a vector of characters as a private variable in a class header file? If so, why isn't it working for me?

Asked by HeroicZach (195points) September 19th, 2009

When I declare, like this:

class myClass
//public functions
vector<char> myVector;

The program compiles, but when I set up the default constuctor in the .cpp file that matches up with this .h class header, like this:


…the program does not compile. What’s the deal?

Observing members: 0 Composing members: 0

Just throwing this in. Have you cleaned, before you execute?

You are not using the correct syntax for the vector constructor. Look at the specification at Dinkumware.

If you want to put an entire array in to the vector at once, I suggest you check out this page (specifically the last example):

If you don’t want to use arrays, then I suggest using the push_back function. Examples of this can be found here:
