The syntax looks OK. Do you have something like ...

#include <iostream>
using std::cout;
using std::endl;

... in your aspect header? You have to make sure that every object, 
which is referenced by the introduced code, is known in every affected 
translation unit. The best way to achieve this goal is to include the 
respective header files in the aspect header.

However, I doubt that this is the problem here.

If you have a simple example, don't hesitate to send me the code.
