Thanks for your report.

Which version of GIFT, please? Which version of gcc?

#include <cassert> is more c++ish, if I am not mistaken.

Yes, this changed somewhere between gcc 2.95 and 3, if I am not mistaken.
The old "line
were a nonstandard extension. As this gets a nuisance if you try making
things work on several compilers without really simplifying the coding,
this was removed from g++. If you get interested in mysql access, then
simply turn strings


"strings "
"like "
"this "

(without adding a semicolon at end of the line. The strings will be
concatenated. See Stroustrup's c++ or the gcc docs for details.)

Yes, each 3.0, 3.1 etc. each brought new surprises, mainly concerning more
strict and more accurate namespace and template handling.
