i don't find any docs about that issue, so i ask it here:

the usual approach to work with templates and separated
interface and implementation is as follows (i hope):


template<class a> void foo(std::string xxx);
#include "x_impl.hpp"


template<class a> void foo(std::string xxx)
  string bla = xxx + "sdjkfh"; // <-- no std:: here !!!!
  cout << bla;

usually in normal non-template coding style i can do

using namespace std;

on the top of each .cpp file. but now i cannot do it, because it is
actually in a header file and i don't want to include another namespace
in the interface definition.

how can i solve the problem? i don't want to write "using namespace std"
at the beginning of every template function declaration, but only once
per implementation file.

cu & thx
