    You using Babelfish or something?

    Regarding the question, I think C is an important letter in both "cin" and "cout" ("in" and "out" might not work without the c!), and a flag is one of those cloth thingies that distuingish between different countries. Your country has one, too. You know, they hang 'em on tall poles?

    Well, thanks Unregistered, for your wisdom.

    First small point, cin and cout are objects thus are constructs of C++ not C. C does not support the concept of objects.

    Typically a flag is a binary, (etc.), value that is either set/reset to enable or disable some feature of the object, (etc.), that owns the flag, or is set/reset by an object, (etc.), to indicate some status.

    I think you'll need to be a little more specific with your question to get a really good answer though.
