    Yes, C++ is the right language for games. As for your problem..well..what is it?

    Well i typed out this code:

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    int main()
    {
      cout<<"HEY, you, I'm alive! Oh, and Hello World!\n";
      cin.get();
    
      return 1;
    }
    I saved it as iostream. I then installed borland compiler or sumthing. If i double click iostram.cpp, a command prompt window flashes up then flashes away. If i open up command prompt then type in the location it says it cant open it.

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    int main()
    {
      cout<<"HEY, you, I'm alive! Oh, and Hello World!\n";
      cin.get();
    
      return 0; //returning 0 means successful exit
    }
    use borland to compile and run the program. Should work now.

    Have you compiled the cpp file? usually double clicking on a cpp file will open it in your IDE (or whaterver text editor you have set to open files of this type).
    When compiled you should have an executable files who's extension would be .exe assuming this is a windows sytem.

    You shouldn't save your file as iostream, that is used by the C++ library and will confuse you and us (and possible cause errors). Name it main.cpp or something like that.

    Also, to execute a program usually you double-click the .exe file, not the .cpp file.

    I think he needs to associate the files with the editor first guys.
