    what is this error

    Hi sorry for another post but i'm an error and I have no clue how to fix it I followed what was written in the book and this is what I put in.
    "
    // Listing 2.2 using std::cout
    #include <iostream.h>
    int main()
    {
    std::cout << "Hello there.\n";
    std::cout << "Here is 5: " << 5 << "\n" ;
    std::cout << "The manipulator std::end1";
    std::cout << "writes a new line to the screen.";
    std::cout << std::end1
    std::cout << "Here is a very big number:\t" << 70000;
    std::cout << std::end1
    std::cout << "Here is the sum of 8 and 5:\t";
    std::cout << 8+5 << std::end1
    std::cout << "here's a fraction:\t\t";
    std::cout << (float) 5/8 << std::end1
    std::cout << "Don't forget to replace Jesse Libriry";
    std::cout << "with your name...\n";
    std::cout << "Jesse Librity is a C++ programmer!\n";
    std::sin.get()
    return 0;
    }
    "
    thes are the errors i'm getting line 10"..end1 undeclared (first use here) line 10"parse error before" line 12"confused by earlier errors, bailing out"

    i added comments...

    Code:
    // Listing 2.2 using std::cout
    #include <iostream.h>   //**should be <iostream> not <iostream.h>
    int main()
    {
    std::cout << "Hello there.\n";
    std::cout << "Here is 5: " << 5 << "\n" ;
    std::cout << "The manipulator std::end1";
    std::cout << "writes a new line to the screen.";
    std::cout << std::end1   //**need a semicolin
    std::cout << "Here is a very big number:\t" << 70000;
    std::cout << std::end1   //**need a semicolin
    std::cout << "Here is the sum of 8 and 5:\t";
    std::cout << 8+5 << std::end1   //**need a semiclin
    std::cout << "here's a fraction:\t\t";
    std::cout << (float) 5/8 << std::end1   //**semicolin
    std::cout << "Don't forget to replace Jesse Libriry";
    std::cout << "with your name...\n";
    std::cout << "Jesse Librity is a C++ programmer!\n";
    std::sin.get()   //**semicolin
    return 0;
    }
    mostly missing semicolins...
    If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrariwise, what it is, it wouldn't be, and what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?

    yea I fixed most of the probles it just where it says
    std::cout << "here's a fraction:\t\t";
    I get the error " unterminated character constant
    and also in
    std::cout << "here's a fraction:\t\t";
    same error

    ah.. i think you were putting end1 (end one) it should be endl (endL but with a lowercase l).

    also, it should be std::cin.get() not std::sin.get() at the end.

    There is no error in that line, the error is because of the line under it, the end1 which should be endl;
    none...

    I can't see the screenshot, but anyways, this is a working code:
    [code]
    #include <iostream>
    int main()
    {
    std::cout << "Hello there.\n";
    std::cout << "Here is 5: " << 5 << "\n" ;
    std::cout << "The manipulator std::end1";
    std::cout << "writes a new line to the screen.";
    std::cout << std::endl;
    std::cout << "Here is a very big number:\t" << 70000;
    std::cout << std::endl;
    std::cout << "Here is the sum of 8 and 5:\t";
    std::cout << 8+5 << std::endl;
    std::cout << "here's a fraction:\t\t";
    std::cout << (float) 5/8 << std::endl;
    std::cout << "Don't forget to replace Jesse Libriry";
    std::cout << "with your name...\n";
    std::cout << "Jesse Librity is a C++ programmer!\n";
    std::cin.get();
    return 0;
    }
    [\code]

    Compare it with your's...
    You had a mistake when you were using: iostream.h
    among with std::cout, ...
    I'm not use if this is acceptable in your compiler, but as far as I know you should use iostream only( without .h )...
    none...

    try this:

    #include<iostream>

    using namespace std;

    so you don't have to do "std::thing" every time, just type in "thing".

    Your error is commented (except for the endl's)

    Code:
    #include<iostream>
    
    int main()
    {
      std::cout << "Hello there.\n";
      std::cout << "Here is 5: " << 5 << "\n" ;
      std::cout << "The manipulator std::endl";
      std::cout << "writes a new line to the screen.";
      std::cout << std::endl                                //semicolon
      std::cout << "Here is a very big number:\t" << 70000;
      std::cout << std::endl                                //semicolon
      std::cout << "Here is the sum of 8 and 5:\t";
      std::cout << 8+5 << std::endl                    //semicolon
      std::cout << "here's a fraction:\t\t";
      std::cout << (float) 5/8 << std::endl          //semicolon
      std::cout << "Don't forget to replace Jesse Libriry";
      std::cout << "with your name...\n";
      std::cout << "Jesse Librity is a C++ programmer!\n";
      std::sin.get()                                               //cin not sin and semicolon
      return 0;
    }

    >>std::cout << "The manipulator std::endl"; // quotation mark boy!!

    what's wrong with this? if you mean that 'std::endl' is in the quotes, then i believe this is correct... he's output some information about std::endl, not tryint to use it.
    If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrariwise, what it is, it wouldn't be, and what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?

    so... here it is fixed for you
    Code:
    #include<iostream>
    
    using namespace std; // now u dont need all of those std::'s
    
    int main()
    {
    	cout << "Hello there.\n";
    	cout << "Here is 5: " << 5 << "\n" ;
    	cout << "The manipulator endl"<< endl; // an endl is placed out of quotes
    	cout << "writes a new line to the screen.";
    	cout << endl;                                //semicolon placed here
    	cout << "Here is a very big number:\t" << 70000;
    	cout << endl;                                //semicolon
    	cout << "Here is the sum of 8 and 5:\t";
    	cout << 8+5 << endl;                    //semicolon
    	cout << "here's a fraction:\t\t";
    	cout << (float) 5/8 << endl;          //semicolon
    	cout << "Don't forget to replace Jesse Libriry";
    	cout << "with your name...\n";
    	cout << "Jesse Librity is a C++ programmer!\n";
    	cin.get();                                               //cin not sin and semicolon
    	return 0;
    }

    Ha, ha, ha. Oh, that's classic. That's when you have a hardware error between your keyboard and your chair. Heh, heh. Thanks for the laugh, lost.soul.
