    I could be wrong, but isnt Borland 5.02 a command line compiler?

    the function istream (cin) in the library "iostrem .h"
    Thats is a now a deceprected header. Drop the .h and use

    Code:
    #include <iostream>

    and header file is not a library - it is a text file, you can open it and search for the function prototype you are intrested...

    But better use some language reference containing all the function prototypes
    The first 90% of a project takes 90% of the time,
    the last 10% takes the other 90% of the time.

    <iostream.h> is not deprecated by the C++ standard. Deprecated implies that it is standard and will work on standards-compliant compilers, but <iostream.h> is completely non-standard and does not work on some modern compilers.

    Open it like any other file, in your IDE or your favourite text editor.

    You can look at header files to find details about functions etc, but sometimes it can be tough to find things. Try some (possibly online) man pages or cppreference.com.

    [edit] See this thread: About the functions in C.
    Especially my post : About the functions in C. [/edit]
