    Question about exceptions in C++ via Xcode
    hi guys,
    i'm currently working on my CS degree and have been using Visual C++. I just got an ibook and am using Xcode to create my applications. My question is about using exceptions in programs via Xcode. I created an application that includes some throw exception code in it. Whenever i try to compile and build in Xcode, I get a few errors returned to me. But when I try to compile and build the same exact code in Visual C++ it works perfectly. I was hoping someone could steer me in the right direction. I'll post the header files i'm using and the errors returned to me in this thread:

    StackException.h file
    #include <exception>
    #include <string>
    using namespace std;

    class StackException: public exception //is this inheritance??

    StackException(const string &message=""): exception(message.c_str())

    StackA.h file
    #include "StackException.h"
    typedef int StackItemType;
    const int MAX_STACK = 20;

    class Stack
    bool isEmpty() const;
    void push(StackItemType newItem) throw(StackException);
    void pop() throw(StackException);
    void pop(StackItemType &stackTop) throw(StackException);
    void getTop(StackItemType &stackTop) const throw(StackException);

    char items[MAX_STACK];
    int top;

    Errors when I compile cpp files:
    exception:55: error: std::exception::exception()
    exception:53: error: candidates are: std::exception::exception(const std::exception&)
    StackA.cpp:51: error: declaration of `void Stack::getTop(StackItemType&) const' throws different exceptions
    StackA.cpp:27: error: declaration of `void Stackp()' throws different exceptions
    StackA.cpp:38: error: declaration of `void Stackp(StackItemType&)' throws different exceptions
    StackA.cpp:14: error: declaration of `void Stack:ush(int)' throws different exceptions
    StackException.h:10: error: no matching function for call to `std::exception::exception(const char*)'
    StackA.h:13: error: than previous declaration `void Stack::getTop(StackItemType&) const throw (StackException)'
    StackA.h:11: error: than previous declaration `void Stackp() throw (StackException)'
    StackA.h:12: error: than previous declaration `void Stackp(StackItemType&) throw (StackException)'
    StackA.h:10: error: than previous declaration `void Stack:ush(int) throw (StackException)'

    Bad C++ compiling in Xcode
    Im also getting bad compiling errors when trying to compile C++ written code in XCode.

    for example even when I do a g++ compile in terminal, i get the same errors as in Xcode. But the errors seem to be incongruent with C++ programming style. Look at my code followed by the errors. Any suggestions would be monumental!!! I have a C++ programming class and if I can get the C++ compiler to work I would be in heaven.

    int main () {
    string word[]={"Arizona","walk","government","C++","beach");
    int wordsize = sizeof(word)/sizeof(string), i;
    for (int j=0;j<wordsize;j++)
    cout<<word[j]<<" ";
    cout << endln;
    //now pass each word to numberVowels
    for (i=0;i<wordsize;i++)
    cout<<word[i]<<": ",,numberVowels(word[i])<<" vowels"<<endl;
    return 0;


    main.cpp: In function `int main()':
    main.cpp:12: error: parse error before `)' token
    main.cpp:13: error: `i' undeclared (first use this function)

    the latter errors seem to be errors that wouldnt be flagged in a C++ compiler. Am I wrong?

    Here is what I see. First you defined the type of j efore using it, but not i. Second the following statement is unbalanced:

    string word[]={"Arizona","walk","government","C++","beach");

    If you count the number of brackets verses parentheses.
