    Why?

    Ok i am using VS.NET 2003 and i cannot include <iostream.h>,

    Code:
    c:\Documents and Settings\Neil\My Documents\School\COMP_352\assign4\GRBFSM.CPP(1) : fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'iostream.h': No such file or directory
    graphutil.cpp
    Thats the error i get. I jst started using VS.NET 2003, before i was using the 2002 version which had no problems including it. I really don't get why i cannot include it.... Do i have to change some settings or something? Does anyone have a clue about what im doing wrong?

    You should now be using
    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    using namespace std;
    The language has moved on, so I guess your latest compiler has finally dropped the old way of doing things.
    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.

    Aw, too bad. Now you have to do things the right way.
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    Ok thanks guys, thats actually what i thought. I guess VS.NET 2003 is different from the older version i was using. But im still getting weird errors i don't understand. Like these:

    Code:
    Compiling...
    Grbfsm.cpp

    ect....
    Why are these showing up? This is what i include:

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <stdlib.h>
    using namespace std;
    should i
    Code:
    #include <stdlib>
    instead of with the .h? But if i do i get an error saying it cannot be found. Man im so confused. :S

    > #include <stdlib.h>
    All of the standard C header files lose the .h and begin with a c

    So
    #include <cstdlib>

    Nevermind i figured out it was a file i was missing that was giving all these errors. It works fine now, i guess im just to use to using Java. Oh well, i learn from mistakes.
