    Program Won't Compile

    Not sure why this won't compile. It says error on line 2
    Code:
    //
    // program to convert temperature from Celcius degree
    // units into Farenheit degree units:
    // Fahrenheit = Celsius * (212 - 32)/100 + 32
    //
       #include <cstdio>
       #include <cstdlib>
       #include <iostream>
       using namespace std:
        
       int main(int nNumberofArgs, char* pszArgs[])
           {
       // enter the temperature in Celsius
           int celsius;
               cout << "Enter the temperature in Celsius:";
               cin >> celsius;
    
       // calculate conversion factor for Celsius
       // to Fahrenheit
           int factor;
           factor = 212 - 32;
    
       // use conversion factor to convert Celsius
       // into Fehrenheit values
           int fahrenheit;
           fahrenheit = factor * celsius/100 + 32;
    
            // output the results (followed by a NewLine)
        cout << "Fahrenheit value is:";
        cout << fahrenheit << endl;
    
            // wait until user is ready before terminating program
            // to allow the user to see the program results
        system("PAUSE");
        return 0;
    }

    This is a joke isn't it ? ( my count is 9 )
    Code:
       using namespace std;

    Not a joke. Why. I don't know what I'm doing. It was what I was told to enter.

    If you put a semicolon after "using namespace std" the program compiles and runs ok. If your compiler tells you that this is line 2 throw it away.
