    Missing header files

    I seem to be missing some header files from my include folder. Now theres only one explanation for this, seeing as im using MSVC++6.0 Prof, it could only be the fact that i didn't chose to instal the mammoth 107MB worth of foundation includes and libraries. Im missing some of the more basic and more hidden includes.

    iostream
    excpt

    these two are stopping me from compiling anything.

    Compiling...
    Main.cpp
    c:\windows\profiles\darkviper\desktop\text adventure\main.cpp(15) : fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'iostream.h': No such file or directory
    Error executing cl.exe.

    anyone know where i can receive thes eincludes? i know exactly where to stash them.

    if you are missing iostream, it's likely that you are missing more important files. I would suggest that you reinstall your copy of msvc++. It doesn't matter that you choosed minimal install, they should be installed anyway

    More like you need to change all the old C++ headers into

    #include <iostream>

    And throw in a
    using namespace std;
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    sorry Salem, it wouldn't recognize the name space

    it turns out that i was missing countless headers and includes. I managed to resolve the problem, for some reason, grabbing every single header file and include from the standard edition at my school seemed to work.
