    what do you mean??

    do you mean that i can use the command:


    Code:
    ofstream fout("testing.bat")
    instead of

    Code:
    ofstream fout("testing.txt")
    ??

    Yeah, but why don't you just try it instead of asking?

    i dun know why it do not support <iostream.h>
    Because it should be <iostream> - no .h - that is the old, depricated style.

    i.e.
    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    
    int main(void)
    {
        std::cout << "this way is more correct" << std::endl;
        return 0;
    }
    You should really be doing it this way in VC++ 6.0 anyway, as it supports this method of including the iostream header, as per the standard.

    or the smarter method...
    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    int main(void)
    {
        cout << "bling!" << endl;
        return 0;
    }
