Subject: [Boost-users] compile problem?

Hi everyone,
  I am a new to boost. When I compile the example of asio_timer, I have a compile error:
                " g++ -o test_timer test_timer.cpp -I /peter/boost/boost_1_36_0 -lboost_thread-gcc42-mt-1_36 -lboost_system-gcc42-mt-1_36
In file included from /usr/include/c++/4.2/iostream:44,
                 from test_timer.cpp:11:
/usr/include/c++/4.2/i486-linux-gnu/bits/c++config.h:149: error: expected constructor, destructor, or type conversion before ‘namespace’

Compilation exited abnormally with code 1 at Tue Oct 28 00:04:58"
   My compile command is:
           g++ -o test_timer test_timer.cpp -I /peter/boost/boost_1_36_0 -lboost_thread-gcc42-mt-1_36 -lboost_system-gcc42-mt-1_36

I cannot find the reason. Could you help me? Thanks very much.

Best wishes,
