This is a discussion on Simple C++ question within the C++ Programming forums, part of the General Programming Boards category; Visual C++ 6 isn't good enough, what about Dev C++ 4? Yep, even Borland gives me the same error....

    Sigh, nothing ever works the first try.

    So this doesnt compile?:
    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    using namespace std;
    
    int main()
    {
    cout<<"Hello world!";
    
    }

    I know them not: not therefore am I short
    Of knowing what I ought."

    Yes, it does.

    But whenever I use it in larger programs (more than one include), it throws errors at me..like this:

    Code:
    #include <stdlib>
    #include <fstream>
    #include <string>
    
    using namespace std;
    Will not compile. Error message: "Could not find include file "stdlib". (That is only part of a program, I know that there is no main() listed here...hehe)

    Because the C header files are prefixed with c.

    E.g. it should be #include <cstdlib>

    The C++ standard headers are:

    <algorithm> <bitset> <cassert>
    <cctype> <cerrno> <cfloat>
    <ciso646> <climits> <clocale>
    <cmath> <complex> <csetjmp>
    <csignal> <cstdarg> <cstddef>
    <cstdio> <cstdlib> <cstring>
    <ctime> <cwchar> <cwctype>
    <deque> <exception> <fstream>
    <functional> <iomanip> <ios>
    <iosfwd> <iostream> <istream>
    <iterator> <limits> <list>
    <locale> <map> <memory>
    <new> <numeric> <ostream>
    <queue> <set> <sstream>
    <stack> <stdexcept> <streambuf>
    <string> <strstream> <utility>
    <valarray> <vector>

    You ever try a pink golf ball, Wally? Why, the wind shear on a pink ball alone can take the head clean off a 90 pound midget at 300 yards.

    Wow, I never knew that.

    Thanks Cat. Well it looks like this now

    Code:
    #include <cstdlib>
    #include <fstream>
    #include <cstring>
    
    using namespace std;
    But it's acting like fstream doesn't exist.

    Start a new post then about your specific problem; it's almost certainly an error in your code -- the stream classes changed somewhat from their original pre-1998 incarnations, so maybe you use it in an strange way that is no longer supported. I'd have to see more than the includes to tell what is wrong.
