what is the use of header file :<iostream.h> in c++

Recommended Answers

there is no use for iostream.h because it is obsolete. use iostream instead (without the .h extension) assuming your compiler supports it. Old compilers such as original Turbo C++ may recognaize iostream.h.

It defines the c++ iostream classes -- output text to the console monitor.

what operators? please post code that is giving you problems and your compiler's error message(s). iostream operators are in iostream header file.

in which header file the operators will be stored in c++

>in which header file the operators will be stored in c++
It could be a trick question... perhaps the question is asking about the normal C++ operators such as +,-, etc.. In that case, there is no header file as these are built into the C++ language.

suppose ,if u do an addition in c++ , where the addition opertor will be stored in a program

you need iostream to get functions like cin and cout i think

suppose ,if u do an addition in c++ , where the addition opertor will be stored in a program

that's a pretty ambiguous question -- c++ has lots of addition operators and you can create your own. please post an example of what you mean.
