I'm pretty new to C++, and I'm using
std::cout for debugging purposes.
Though, I'd really like to be able to just use
cout rather than the whole
std::cout thing. I know i could import the
std namespace, but I've been explained it was a bad thing due to name clashing that can occur because of this.
Is there anyway to do this?
std::ostream cout = std::cout;
But I get
function "std::basic_ostream<_CharT, _Traits>::basic_ostream(const std::basic_ostream<_CharT, _Traits> &) [with _CharT=char, _Traits=std::char_traits<char>]" (declared at line 391 of "/usr/include/c++/5/ostream") cannot be referenced -- it is a deleted function
Sure, with a using declaration:
Usual health warnings about not doing this in header files, and limiting it to small scopes apply.
