Error during compiling the example using g++

I would like to try out the library, but had problems compiling the example code given in the documentation.

I am trying to compile using gcc (actually g++), with the -std=c++0x switch (or gnu pendant), but get a large number of errors and warnings. Below I have added the first error appearing.

I was originally thinking this is due to an old compiler, but I got the same error also with gcc 4.8.1 (which should have all new-spec features).

Is there any hint that I could follow up?


Compile cmd line: (KLXLL points to the library root) (compiled on win32)
gPLUSPLUS -c -std=gnuPLUSPLUS0x -I%KLXLL% xlTest1.cpp
and the content of xlTest1.cpp is

#include <cmath>
#include "xll/xll.h"
// Another error surrounding "Excel4" if I leave out the following line:
#include "xll/XLCALL.h"

using namespace xll;

static AddIn xai_exp(
    "?xll_exp", XLL_DOUBLE XLL_DOUBLE,
    "XLL.EXP", "Number"
double WINAPI xll_exp(double number)

    return exp(number);

Error output
..//xll20120116/trunk/xll/loper.h: In constructor 'LXOPER<X>::LXOPER()':

Don't use gcc. Use Visual Studio. VS Express is free.

Can you give a hint (or informed guess) what might be a problem with the compilation there? For example, any speciality concerning the definition of member "xltype", any language concepts etc?

Yes, xll.h includes windows.h. Where is gcc is going to find that?
