I can't #include <iostream> because it gives me an error "Expected unqualified-id".

 

Anyone have any experience with this?

<iostream> is a C++ header. Objective-C is based on C, not C++. So the C++ constructs in a C++ header are unintelligible and will cause compiler errors.

 

 

You can build your Cocoa projects in Objective-C++ instead, this will let you include C++ headers. If you're using Xcode this is as simple as changing the file extensions from .m to .mm.

Indeed, the problem was that one of the .m files had to be renamed to .mm.

 

Now I'm getting linker problems:

Edit: I fixed it by renaming one of the .mm files to .m. :)
