Where can I find iostream.h ON THE INTERNET
basically, I know how to use iostream.h, but I need to download it.
I am not going to download a new compiler.
I do not need any tips on how to include it in my program.
Just where to find it.
I have scoured the internet and have not found it.
Please give me a link to a website where i can download iostream.h.

Is <iostream.h> the new <graphics.h>? :icon_rolleyes: Here's an idea: update your code to use <iostream> if your compiler doesn't support the non-standard and non-portable <iostream.h>.

No, I can figure out the .h and the <> "" thing fine. Just looking for a link where I can download the file from the internet.

Somehow I doubt that.

And what do you expect to do with the file? It's highly likely to depend on many other files, and be closely tied to the compiler for which it was written. For example, here's the <iostream> contents on my version of GCC:

That looks pretty freaking useless if you're not using GCC, in which case you'd already have the header. So let's not beat around the bush: what you're asking for is stupid. So please explain why you think you need to download a header file and we'll be in a better position to tell you how to solve the problem in a less stupid way.

Here you can download visual c++ ...

Visual C++ no longer supports <iostream.h>. Nice try, but please attempt to understand the question before answering. ;)
