C++ error messages

OK, one thing I don’t miss about C++ is the error messages. Here’s an incredibly obtuse way to say something:

In file included from /usr/include/c++/4.4/bits/stl_algobase.h:67,
                 from /usr/include/c++/4.4/bits/char_traits.h:41,
                 from /usr/include/c++/4.4/ios:41,
                 from /usr/include/c++/4.4/ostream:40,
                 from /usr/include/c++/4.4/iostream:40,
                 from ../src/Flipper.cpp:1:

../src/Flipper.cpp:102:   instantiated from here

/usr/include/c++/4.4/bits/stl_iterator_base_types.h:130: error: no type named ‘pointer’ in ‘class CGAL::Point_2 > >’
/usr/include/c++/4.4/bits/stl_iterator_base_types.h:131: error: no type named ‘reference’ in ‘class CGAL::Point_2 > >’

Translation: you don’t need to include ‘centroid.h’.
