Edited 6 Years Ago by happygeek: not a code snippet

The code you have posted is not the same as the one you compiled. C++ is case sensitive for variable names so Std:: isn't std:: (you need the latter). Also, rather than being end1 (number one) its endl (letter l). Again, both of these seem to be correct in the code you posted so you must be compiling something you typed in.
