Since ISO/ANSI C++ standard prohibits the above from working, I suppose
it's the right thing to do ;-) See 188.8.131.52 [lib.ifstream.members] in
the standard. (in.open (s.c_str()) is the allowed one).
GDB is your only choice unfortunately. If your machines run X server, then
you may want to check into DDD debugger, which is a very nice front-end to
gdb. Otherwise, Emacs is a pretty good interface to gdb as well.
Al Stevens' Quincy'99 (http://www.midifitz.com/alstevens/quincy99/) is
also worth a look. It's an IDE for mingw32 (can't see why it won't work
with Cygwin with some minor changes) with an integrated debugger.

B20.1 distribution includes EGCS-1.1 (or thereabouts), and the current
release is 1.1.2. There've been quite a few changes to the C++ front-end,
quite a few bug fixes specially in the win32 backend, and so on. If your
students do any programming at all, I suggest you install the latest
