the problem with the code is that because you have <iostream> and not <iostream.h>. <iostream> is a shorthand which only works if you say you are using the standard namespace (which allows shorthand re-naming) ie using namespace std; sorry had to clarify that :)
the problem is the conflict with <iostream> (no.h) and <stdlib.h> (a .h) which means the compiler cannot second guess the namespace for you, i think...?
Dave Sinkula --> could you have a look at c/c++ tutorials post "namespaces" as i have a post question in there about namespaces as there is something i am confused about and u seem to know a bit about it. cheers :)
works. Just a reminder, system("PAUSE") activates the old DOS command PAUSE and is not very portable code. There is also a school of thought that claims that namespace std clutters things up for other potential namespaces.
