    format not recognuzed

    i got this error message when i tried to compile my project:


    C:\MYDOCU~1\RSRC.o: file not recognized: File format not recognized

    all i did was add the iostream.h include and write a stupid little for loop. I didn't add any includes to the resource file or anything. this is the first time this has happened. please help.

    It means you have to reformat your brain.

    What compiler are you using?
    What commands are you using to compile your code?

    I am using bloodshed dev 4. the whole source to my code is as follows:


    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <iostream.h>

    int main(int argc, char *argv[])
    {
    int x;
    for (x=0; x<100; x++)
    {
    cout<<x<<endl;
    }
    return 0;
    }

    So you save it, go to the compile menu, and select compile?
