    Angry Grrr this stuff is still new to me

    So I'm still getting used to this programming thing and i can't figure this out so I run here for help. If you choose to help me Thank you in advance
    heres the code
    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    using namespace std
    
    int main(int, argc, char*, argv[])
    {   int num=0, sum=0, cnt=0, largest=0, negative=0;
        while (cin)
    	{ cnt ++;
          cin>>num;
    
    	  cout << "input"<<num<<endl;
    	  sum=sum+num // or sum+=num;
          cout <<"sum="<<sum<<endl;
    	  if (num > largest)
    		  largest + num;
    	  if (num<0)
    		  negative++;//or negative=negative+1;
    	}
    	cout,,"largest="<<largest<<"negative="<<negative<<endl;
    	<<"sum="<<sum<<endl;
    	return 0;
    }
    and if you can suggest a good book to help me on my way that will also be much appreciated
    THANKS!

    Code:
    cout,,"largest="<<largest<<"negative="<<negative<<endl;
    	<<"sum="<<sum<<endl;
    Should be (semicolon, ,, should be <<):
    Code:
    cout << "largest=" << largest << "negative=" << negative << endl
            << "sum=" << sum << endl;
    And this:
    Code:
    using namespace std
    
    int main(int, argc, char*, argv[])
    Should be (semicolon, datatype name):
    Code:
    using namespace std;
    
    int main(int argc, char* argv[])

    A GREAT book is:
    The Complete Reference for C++ 3rd Edition
    By: Herbert Schildt

    Have fun and be careful with your semicolons!

    int main(int argc, char* argv[])
    {

         cnt++;
          cin>>num;
    
    	  cout<<"input"<<num<<"\n";
    	  sum=sum+num; // or sum+=num;
          cout<<"sum="<<sum<<"\n";
    	  if (num > largest)
          {
    		  largest + num;
          }
    	  if (num<0)
          {
          negative++;//or negative=negative+1;
          }
           
          }
     cout<<"largest="<<largest<<"negative="<< negative <<"\n"<<"sum="<<sum<<"\n";
    
    	return 0;
    }
    I hope the braces I added or my \n escape sequenced didnt confuse you there, btw: \n is newline.
    There you go!
