    #include <sstream>

    If it's in the standard library that is. Put that before your main() function, near the top of the source file.

    Like swgh implied, it probably wasn't included with your compiler. You're using Dev C++ 4, right? If so, and you want to continue using Dev-C++, get the v5 beta. Otherwise there are a number of free compilers that will include it such as Code::Blocks (*snipped bad info*), and VS Express is still free, I think...

    There is a difference between tedious and difficult.

    Last I knew Code::Blocks was its own dev team and didn't have anything to do with bloodshed. Also Code::Blocks doesn't have any header files, you get those from the installed compiler, which most use MinGW with Code::Blocks.

    If the IDE doesn't come with any header files then you have to install mingw which is the collection of compilers and header files for c and c++.
