    Unhappy Error...

    Im using MSVC++ and after severly attempts at correcting mistakes it says "error C2001: newline in constant" or somethign like that, and unless I put a ; in front of all my couts it come up as an error. Why is that?

    Thanks,
    Gutty

    It means you probably forgot to close a string literal:
    Code:
    cout<<"Testing<<endl;
    cout<<"1..2..3.."<<endl;
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    Waoh that was really fast. You mean I didn't put ; at the end of each line? I do though, it says the ; has to be BEFORE the cout. Very weird.
