Well, I did something like this:

class_ c(..);

class list {
    list() {  
        this->class = cp;

constant_list = new list(..);

Now, depending on the order of things, I think this->class became

Thanks again for your help. Your Makefile made it very easy for me to
create a Windows package. I'm glad to learn about Mingw too.. very

Have you tried compiling any code of your own yet..?
