    How do I convert an integer to a string?

    I am trying to convert an int to a string I used itoa() on my Borland compiler, but on my schools VisualAge C++ Professional / C for AIX Compiler, Version 5 running on a Unix server this function is not in the stlidb(). So is the only way to copy an integer to a string is to do a bitwise copy?

    Look up stringstreams.

    When you say something like that, do you realize how stupid you sound? Seriously, dude. Noobies without any sort of intellectual independence are really starting to ........ me off. Search the board before posting, and STFW, RTFM, read your farking textbook, pay attention in class.
