    c++ strings

    hey,
    I'm trying to do the c++ style strings tutorial on this site but it's not working. Could it be because I'm using Dev c++?

    here's my code:

    Code:
    #include <iostream.h>
    #include <stdlib.h>
    using namespace std;
    
    int main()
    {
    string my_string;
          return 0;
    }
    not realy sure why this won't work. Help would be apreciated, thanks

    the program itself will not indicate to the user whether it's working or not.
    the program simply declares a variable, then exits. any compiler errors?


    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <string>
    using namespace std;
    
    int main()
    {
         string first_name;
         string last_name;
         
         cout << "Enter your first name:  ";
    
         cin >> first_name;
      
         cout << "\n\nEnter your last name:  ";
    
         cin >> last_name;
    
         cout << "\n\nYour full name is:  " <<  first_name << "  " << last_name;
    
         cout << "\n\nYour initials are:  " << first_name[0] << ". " << last_name[0] << ".";
    
         return 0;
    }
