DLL version 1.1.7: Problems with iostream.h

        Hello,

    cout is a C++ feature. When the extension of a file is c, the gcc
compiler assumes it is a c file, not a c++ one. The problem can be solved in
several ways:
            1. rename it to xxxx.cc
            2. use g++ instead of gcc
            3. use gcc -x c++ xxxxx.c

    Regards, Daniel.
