    Visual C++ 2003 header problem

    hello, I'm using Visual studio 2003 for the first time, and I have run into a problem, when I try to include *any standard header file, it tells me that it doesn't exist, though I have fiddled with the 'precompiled header' stuff, tuning it on and off, I can't seem to solve this, here is an example:

    Code:
    #include <fstream.h>
    int main()
    {
    	char str[2000];
    	fstream file_op("test.txt",ios::in);
    	while(file_op >> str)
    	
    		cout << str;
    	
    
    	file_op.close();
    
    	return (0);
    }
    Code:
    fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'fstream.h': No such file or directory
    Thanks in advance

    If you double click on the error it should bring you to the offending line. fstream.h has been removed completely and you should be using fstream instead. Also make sure you make use of the std namespace when you are using objects declared within that namespace.

    well, when I try to use the precompiled headers, I just get the following error:

    Code:
    fatal error C1010: unexpected end of file while looking for precompiled header directive
    // EDIT : I decided to just use Dev C++, and everything works fine now, but thanks anyway MrWizard

    How about this.

    Code:
    #include <fstream>
    #include <iostream>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    int main()
    {
    	char str[2000];
    	fstream file_op("test.txt",ios::in);
    	while(file_op >> str)
    	
    		cout << str;
    	
    
    	file_op.close();
    
    	return (0);
    }
