    quicky

    quick question:

    im planning on taking computer science next year, but i have a question for now.

    why is the output only "hello world" and doesnt include the rest in the quotes.

    Code:
    #include <iostream.h>
    
    int main()
    
    {
    
      cout<<"HEY, you, I'm alive!  Oh, and Hello World!";
    
      return 0;    
    
    }

    uhh not sure what u mean, i get

    HEY, you, I'm alive! Oh, and Hello World!Press any key to continue
    which is 100% correct. Mind if i improve upon the code some?

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    int main()
    
    {
    
      cout<<"HEY, you, I'm alive!  Oh, and Hello World!" 
             <<endl;
    
      return 0;    
    
    }

    the "'s are not output because that signifies to the compiler that this is a literal string that you want output, in this case Hello, world! It is part of the syntax of c/c++. I hope this is what you mean.

    It looks like there is an error in your text book!

    I took ti as he isnt learning with a book. I think he didnt see the rest of it, or like was previously said expected the "" to output.

    nevermind, you could disregard my above post. read the original ? too fast.

    did you write "Hello World" before this, and then modified it to say this, and not save and recompile?
