Looking at the question, the edits and the comments, it's becoming clear that the setup of your compiler chain and the headers is probably the cause. You could keep trying to add things, but I would take a different tack:
- Make a full backup of the Mac - one that you are serious about using if you wipe the machine and run a test compile of the program and then restore either the full backup or files you need selectively from the backup.
- Remove Xcode and remove all the compilers you have downloaded and installed.
- Install a tool to assist with the maintenance and installation of the compiler and the need header library files for the latest c++ standard.
The tool I use is homebrew, so you can install it per https://brew.sh
brew doctor - and be sure you follow any of the advice in the doctor or post here for advice
brew install gcc
Here is the test program I used for a "minimal test case"
using namespace std;
cout << "Hello World" << endl;
Before using the "brew" version of gcc, I get what I presume is the same error as you:
mac:Desktop me$ /usr/bin/gcc gate\ test.cpp

#error <atomic> is not implemented
1 error generated.
mac:Desktop me$ which gcc
But if I compile it using the "brew installed gcc", I'm getting a very nice detailed message

- pointing your compiler to g++5
- delete other compilers as needed (including Xcode possibly)
- adding the compile option -std=c++11
