First of all, hi to all members. I'm new here
I'm very new to C++. The stuff they're teaching us at school (and in the 2 month c++ course I joined in the vacations) uses those "antiquated" header files ( <iostream.h> and all).
For school, I MUST learn this, I know. But I wanted to ask if not using this new syntax (or whatever) makes any difference? (except those humoungous error messages). Is there any difference b/w the syntax of the new and the old programming? Is ir even right to call one of them "old" and one of them "new"? And, once I've been through my school exams and all, can I learn this STL and all that without re-learning or un-learning old stuff?
As you see, I'm extremely confused. Please help me out, guys!
