    how to handle exceptions

    hi...i m learning the concepts of exception handling and trying to run my first program using try- catch block.
    the problem is the compiler is not able to identify try and catch keywords.
    is there a problem in the compiler or do i have to include any special header file for it.??
    plz guide me...the code is as follows:

    Code:
    #include<iostream.h>
    #include<conio.h>
    void  main()
    { 
      int a,b;
      cin>>a>>b; 
      int x=a-b;
      try
         {  
           if(x!=0) cout<<“Result (a/x)”<<a/x<<“\n”;
           else throw(x); 
         } 
      catch (int i) 
        {
            cout<< “Exception caught”<<i<<“\n”;
        }
       cout<<“End”;
       getch();
    }

    you only waited 10 minutes before bumping your thread! gonna have to have more patience than that

    note, you are using C-style header files.. get rid of the '.h'. and change 'void main' to 'int main'.

    edit: it looks your logic actually works, however your program doesnt compile under a C++ compiler. after you get it to compile, your exception handling will work.
