Problems with C++ itoa() function
This is what I am trying to do, assign an integer to a string so for instance:
and I want myStr to have "5". So I am using the "itoa()" function of the format:
char* itoa( int value,
int radix );
and I know that that I am implementing it properly. I am running two compilers, Metrowerks code warrior on windows and G++ on Linux, so when I compile the code on the windows machine it works fine but on the Linux machine (which is my first priority) I get this error:
implicit declaration of function `int itoa(...)'
What am I doing wrong? I googled quite a bit and found some people saying that it might be a bug, but that they werent sure. so is there a way that I can use that function in G++?

itoa() is a non-standard function. Use sprintf() instead :D. If you want to go the C++ way, you might also want to consider the strstream class

MyString should now hold 5
using namespace std;
int MyInt = 5;
MyStream << MyInt << ends;
MyString = MyStream.str();
