    code help

    i am starting to understand this a little, but i tried to do a small thing that made it just say hello on the screen but these warnings come up

    C:\Dev-Cpp\main.cpp
    [Warning] In function `int main()':
    5 C:\Dev-Cpp\main.cpp
    parse error before `)' token
    C:\Dev-Cpp\Makefile.win
    [Build Error] [main.o] Error 1

    and my code is this ( i used windows.h because that seemed to work better than iostream.h when i use iostream.h or iostream i get a warning that says it doesn't exist.)
    #include <windows.h>

    int main()
    {
    ()cout <<"hello";
    return 0;
    }

    no () before cout

    just

    cout << "Hello";

    also, try this and see if u get iostream problems

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    int main()
    {
    cout << "Hello" << endl;
    return 0;
    }

    try what RoD posted, if that doesn't work, check your compiler paths.

    its telling you its undeclared because you need iostream, try my code then let me know what happens.

    try

    Code:
    #include <iostream.h>
    
    int main()
    {
    cout << "Hello" << endl;
    return 0;
    }

    I think its your compiler (setup).

    that seemed to work better i only got these warnings

    22 C:\Dev-Cpp\main.cpp:1
    iostream.h: No such file or directory.
    C:\Dev-Cpp\main.cpp
    [Warning] In function `int main()':
    5 C:\Dev-Cpp\main.cpp
    `cout' undeclared (first use this function)

    (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once for each function
    5 C:\Dev-Cpp\main.cpp
    `endl' undeclared (first use this function)
    C:\Dev-Cpp\Makefile.win
    [Build Error] [main.o] Error 1

    but if i put the () before cout like this

    i only get these errors
    22 C:\Dev-Cpp\main.cpp:1
    iostream.h: No such file or directory.
    C:\Dev-Cpp\main.cpp
    [Warning] In function `int main()':
    5 C:\Dev-Cpp\main.cpp
    parse error before `)' token
    C:\Dev-Cpp\Makefile.win
    [Build Error] [main.o] Error 1

    something isnt right with your compiler if its not finding iostream, did you follow all of its setup instructions? What version is it?

    Borland has a trial version, bloodshed, djgpp(spelling?) i think.

    As far as setting it up, check google or the boards. Compilers and such has been covered many many times.

    i have bloodshed and djpp i think you have to download a bunch of things rather than just one big download and there are so many things there that it gets confusing if anyone has the downloads i need send them to me my e-mail is streetvert83@hotmail.com

    I'm attaching a zip with two iostream files in it, but i only ever used VC++ so i cant be sure it will work, but i doubt it.
