    goto school, find the include directories for Borland, copy the files you need into a floppy, go home, make a new folder, paste them there, change your directories to add that folder.

    directories? yes, its usually a list of folders in the options menu in most IDEs

    PS: make sure you copy the .cpp (or .c or .cxx or whatever) files along with the .h (or .hxx) files. just copy the whole folder. but i'm sure whatever features are in that library are in your compiler's libraries. just take a look, or else, do what i said.

    hehe...at school we use that too..but i never use it...the problem is your teacher didnt install it in your directory yet..tell him/her to......but i rather not use it...make your own (learn better with dynamic memory allocation)

    Nah, use the std::string class. It's a lot simpler. Only rewrite standard libraries when you purely want the learning experience, other wise, it's generally a waste of time.

    Another cool trick for school.

    Open Notepad, go into File->Open, now find Program Files on C:\ and then open Internet Explorer then iexplore.exe. Don't double click it or open it! Right click, and select the option Open. Now you can go on the internet! Most school computers use Fortress to block stuff and thats a big bug. Just about any Open dialog you can access any file the network allows you to access.
