To my knowledge "string" is NOT a reserved word in C++.
You run only into problems, when copying the std:: namespace onto the
Emboss namespace with "using namespace std;".
>From "The C+ + Programming Language Third Edition: by Bjarne
You must either use the std:: prefix or make every name from std
global (§8.2.3). For example:
#include<string> // make the standard string facilities accessible
using namespace std; // make std names available without std:: prefix
string s = "Ignorance is bliss!"; // ok: string is std::string
It is generally in poor taste to dump every name from a namespace into
the global namespace.
A using directive makes names from a namespace available almost as if
they had been declared outside their namespace.
