    hey guys, need some help with a compile error

    well this is my first post, and anyway

    i started programming in c++ a few months ago never got very far, and ive taken it up again

    and im compiling one of my practice programs
    and i get errors, btw im using g++ for my linux machine



    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <stdlib.h>
    #include <string>
    using namespace std;
    int main(int argc, char *argv[])
    {
    int i;
    cin > i;
    if (i > 10) {
      cout << "The number is greater than 10" << endl;
    }
    else if (i == 10) {
      cout << "It is equal to 10" << endl;
    }
    else {
      cout << "It is less than 10" << endl;
    }
    return 0;
    }



    and now the error


    gateway C++ # g++ secondprog.cpp -o secondprog
    secondprog.cpp: In function `int main(int, char**)':
    secondprog.cpp:8: no match for `std::istream& > int&' operator
