    string.h help

    I bought a used copy of Learning to Program in C++ by Steve Heller. It ususally comes with DJGPP Compiler, but mine was used and didn't have it. I just use Borland C++ 5.0
    Anyways one of the examples in the book has

    #include "string6.h"

    my guess is for the part in the code that says

    string answer;

    Anyways when I compile the program I get

    Unable to open include file 'string6.h'
    Undefind symbol 'string'

    I'm guessing that Borland 5 doesn't use the header string6.h and only DJGPP does, but I can't find what the substitute would be for Borland so I can make this program work. Please help.



    Here is the whole source if needed
    __________________________________________________ __
    #include <iostream.h>
    #include "string6.h"

    int main()
    {
    string answer;

    cout << "Please respong to the following statement ";
    cout << "with either true or false\n";

    cout << "Susan is the world's most tenacious novice.\n";
    cin >> answer;

    if(answer !="true")
    if(answer !="false")
    cout << "Please answer with either true or false.";

    if(answer =="true")
    cout << "Your answer is correct\n";

    if(answer=="false")
    cout << "Your answer is erroneous\n";

    return 0;
    }
