Hi! I'm getting this error when compiling:
$ g++ index.cpp
index.cpp:85: error: 'friend' used outside of class
index.cpp: In function 'std::ostream& operator<<(std::ostream&, const GrabStuff&)':
index.cpp:88: error: 'myLineNumbers' was not declared in this scope


Links to included files:

class GrabStuff

		[B]friend ostream& operator<< (ostream &, const GrabStuff&);[/B]

GrabStuff::GrabStuff(string s) {     myWord = s;     }

GrabStuff::~GrabStuff() {}

void GrabStuff::setWord (string w) {	    myWord = w;     }

string GrabStuff::getWord () {     return myWord;     }

void GrabStuff::setLineNumber (int num) {     myLineNumbers.enqueue(num);     }

ostream& operator<< (ostream &os, const GrabStuff &name)
{
	os << name.myWord << " ";
	[B]while (!myLineNumbers.isEmpty())[/B]
	{
		// blahblah		
	}
	return os;
}

What am I doing wrong? ='( I've literally looked at this for three hours. HELP! =) Thanks.

i am not sure but it might be
friend ostream& operator<< (ostream &, const GrabStuff&);
needs a space between operator and <<
so it would be
friend ostream& operator << (ostream &, const GrabStuff&);

That is not an issue. I dont know why that error is coming though but I have tested it without space and works fine.


Error 2>

ostream& operator<< (ostream &os, const GrabStuff &name)
{
	os << name.myWord << " ";
	while (!myLineNumbers.isEmpty()) /*IN THIS LINE*******/
	{
		// blahblah		
	}
	return os;
}

Should have done

while (!name.myLineNumbers.isEmpty())
