    try to put this in your header:

    Code:
     #include <iostream>
     using namespace std;
    instead of iostream.h


    if that doesn't help then post your entire source code so i can look at it

    Also, does your source file have a ".C" or a ".CPP" extension? If it's ".C", then change it.

    thanks..

    the second one helped... for some reason my compiler(seen below) doesn't accept using namespace std; well, thanks again. I can't wait for that c++ book to come, it should come today or tommorrow.
