    variable type string

    What is the header I need to declare a string? Not an array or char, but a string. I tried <string>, <string.h>, but I still get an error when trying to do something like:

    string message;

    <cstring>

    edit: nevermind, errors still show up for this also.

    The correct header for the string class is <string>, but if you don't handle namespaces anywhere you'll get errors, so you need to do one of these.
    Code:
    #include <string>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    ...
    string message;
    Code:
    #include <string>
    
    using std::string;
    
    ...
    string message;
    Code:
    #include <string>
    
    ...
    std::string message;

    yeah, i forgot the std stuff. i didn't know if you don't do using namespace std; or using std::string; that you need to do std::string for declaration. just tried it, no errors.
