    what do you prefer

    I'm a curious, which header/library do you prefer to use in C or C++ programming I/O, <stdio.h> or <iostream.h>, I myself - a definite <stdio.h>. My reason being is that I believe I have more control (placebo).

    Well, the most obvious answer is that I use whatever is best suited to the job at hand. If a hammer is your tool of preference then would you still use a hammer to tighten a nut?
