    Question Noobified help lol

    I have never programed anything befor, im using bloodshed 5 beta compiler too try and go threw this sites tutorials. But even in the most simple code i get 3 error's haha this is the code;

    #include <iostream.h>

    main()

    {

    cout<<"The Compiler Work">;

    return 0;

    }

    When i compile these are the messages i get lol.
    iostream.h:no such file or directory
    Warning in function `int main()':
    `cout' undeclared (first use this function)
    [build error](Each undeclared identifier is repotred only once for each function it appears in.)
    Execution terminated.

    Sorry for the super noob post and thanks for any answers anyone can give.

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    
    int main()
    {
        std::cout<<"The Compiler Work";
        return 0;
    }
    iostream.h is no longer standard.
    cout is now in the std namespace.
    Specify a return type for main.
    You had a greater than sign after your quotes.

    Specify a return type for main.
    With respect to the returning the value from main, the standard says that if you don't return any value from main, it will default to a return value of zero.

    Pun: wonder howmany compiler are sticking to the standards
    Have a wonderful day.... and keep smiling... you look terrific that way

    you should still return the type of int for main. (good practice)

    I didn't disagree with that! That is true, the default return value from main is 0

    However you still must specify what the return type is or else it is not valid C++!!!

    main() with no return type is not valid
