can C programs use iostream? i've done it in C++, and read that it can be done in C, but i keep getting compilation errors.

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

cout << "test";

you can't but some compilers will treat a file that has a .c extension as a c++ file if it contains c++ syntax which may make some people think you can.
