ok, I haven't tested this yet, but it should work. it's definitely finding 
string, otherwise it would have complained about it, so you don't need to 
add Barrys file anywhere.

you need to have this just after the includes:
using namespace std;

Either that or change references to string etc to std::string

I'll change it in cvs tonight once I test it.
