ok you might think its a pretty stupd question because that header file was already declared to use C I\O functions within a C++ program.
Im a C programmer , and we've been learning C++ in college for a week now. I just hate this 'cout' thing. Its so umm... "childish" and doesn't really give me control and satisfaction over the input like 'printf()' does. So my question simply is , is using printf() within a C++ program considred a bad practice? and why?
what about using C functions like malloc() instead of 'new' ? y'know ... i got used to the C stuff , and i hate to use "easy" alternatives..
appreciate your help
