    #include <iostream> ?

    When I include <iostream> instead of iostream.h, I put in using namespace std. Then my compiler (Borland), gives me an error saying:

    Error: test.cpp(5,1):Namespace name expected

    But I get no error with normal iostream.h . It is very discouraging to try to get used to iosteam, while getting the same error over&over!

    How are you putting the line in? It sounds like this is what you're doing:
    Code:
    using namespace std
    It should be:
    Code:
    using namespace std;
    Just making sure
    Just Google It. √

    older versions of borland can't use the new header files.
