That is right. And actually GNU C++ is close to the standards. Namespace is
hardly implemented in DJGPP C++ because it is hardly implemented in GNU C++
either. At least at this point. Anyway, look for the egcs compiler in for
example ,
or for the pgc compiler (the pentium variant of egcs) at .
Egcs can handle namespaces, but can cause troubles with STL or exception

I found this and other information by a power search on
with namespace in the subject field and comp.os.msdos.djgpp as forum.

Good luck with egcs.
