    Code blocks help, too many errors!

    Hello again,

    Im having trouble compiling this code. I took this code from C++ for dummies, but it doesn't seem to work, why?

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include<stdlib.h>
    #include<io.h>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    int main (int nNumberofArgs, char* pszArgs[])
    {
        int start;
        int n;
        long L;
        long long LL;
        float f;
        double d;
        long double Ld;
        int end;
    
        cout.setf(ios: :hex);
        cout.unsetf(ios: :dec);
    
        cout << "--- = " << &start << endl;
        cout << "&n = " << &n << endl;
        cout << "&L = " << &L << endl;
        cout << "&LL = " << &LL << endl;
        cout << "&f = " << &f << endl;
        cout << "&d = " << &d << endl;
        cout << "&Ld = " << &Ld << endl;
        cout << "--- = " << &end << endl;
    
        system("PAUSE");
        return 0;
    }
    please if anyone can help. Im using code blocks 10. I fixed a few bugs in the include statements, they said cstdio instead of stdio, things like that. I created this as an empty file no project, could that be the reason. I dunno the code loooks fine to me. Let me know!

    Thank-you

    If by "fixed the include statements", you mean "broke the include statements", then sure.

    <cstdio> is correct, not <stdio.h>.
    <cstdlib> is correct, not <stdlib.h>
    <iostream> is correct, not <io.h>.

    You're not allowed to put spaces between consecutive :: characters.

    Probably because you made a few mistakes while typing it in.

    Most of us don't bother to compile code that other's post, so you need to post some of your compiler error messages.

    In the following code you have a space between the colons, there should be no spaces between them "::".
    Code:
        cout.setf(ios: :hex);
        cout.unsetf(ios: :dec);
    You will also need to include the iostream header.

    To be honest, if you took that code straight from a book you are probably alot better off scrapping the book altogether. That code is nonstandard and outdated in more ways than one.
