for the life of me i can not figure out how to do this. i have a string, say "foo = 1", and another string in a list, say "foo = 2". i want to add the "foo = 1" std::string to the list, but if there already a string that specifies what foo is equal too, i want to remove the old string.

You would have to iterate through each node in the list and compare teh string to the new string you want to place in. So in your case you would look for the string "foo = 1" and if you find it then remove it.

std::list<std::string> foolist;
std::string newfoo = "foo = 1"; // To be added to list

std::list<std::string>::iterator i = foolist.beg(); // Declare iterator

for( ; i < != foolist.end() ++i )
if( *i == newfoo ) // Check if it''s alread in the list

foolist.erase( i ) // Erase if it is and exit for loop


foolist.push_back( newfoo ); // Add new one

that should do it

This sounds more like a job for map.

#include <iostream>
#include <map>
#include <string>

int main()
std::map<std::string, int> properties;

properties["width"] = 640;
properties["height"] = 480;

std::cout << properties["width"] << std::endl;
std::cout << properties["height"] << std::endl;
std::cout << properties["foo"] << std::endl; // outputs 0
