Hello,

I have Cygwin installed. I have set it up properly.


I am getting:

Code: [Select]
C:/Cygwin/home/Computer/asdf/kool.c:11:18: vector: No such file or directory
C:/Cygwin/home/Computer/asdf/kool.c:13: error: parse error before "namespace"

Any help?

The compiler can't find the header file  "vector", so it seems your Cygwin was not installed correctly.
I haven't used Cygwin, I use MinGW instead, and it works quite well. :D
If some piece of memory should be reused, turn them to variables (or const variables).
If some piece of operations should be reused, turn them to functions.
If they happened together, then turn them to classes.

Fixed;I had to choose "this project uses a custom MAKEFILE".

But I have one problem; it seems to be rebuilding all files and not checking for changes in file and compiling only the changed files.... (even w/ Build)

I have built the OpenCV library(it is a big library, and use makefiles) under Mingw, If I change some source, only the source file modified will be compiled. So, it works OK in my system.

Maybe, the problem comes from your "Cygwin" or "Makefile script". But I'm not sure :(

"vector" is an C++ header. Code::Blocks defaults to treating .c files as "c" files NOT "c++" files.
