    Programming With Dev C++

    Hi
    Im working with dev c++ and until now Ive been writing programs in C, and compiling them without any problems in DevCPP

    the problem is that when i write code in C++ , Dev C++ wont compile it.

    I copy pasted a code from some C++ book and tried to compile it ,
    heres the code and the the errors given by cpp:

    code:
    Code:
    #include <cstdio>
    #include <cstdlib>
    #include <iostream>
    using namespace std;
    int main(int nNumberofArgs, char* pszArgs[])
    {
    
    int celsius;
    cout <<“Enter the temperature in Celsius:”;
    cin >> celsius;
    
    int factor;
    factor = 212 - 32;
    
    int fahrenheit;
    fahrenheit = factor * celsius/100 + 32;
    
    cout << “Fahrenheit value is:”;
    cout << fahrenheit << endl;
    
    system(“PAUSE”);
    return 0;
    }

    errors:
    Code:
    C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\שולחן העבודה\5.cpp: In function `int main(int, char**)':
    C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\שולחן העבודה\5.cpp:14: error: stray '\147' in program

    I think your quotes characters have the wrong ASCII value. I'm taking a shot in the dark here, that you don't have a standard US/UK keyboard? Or you copied the source from a Word or something. Try replacing the quotes with standard "" quotes and I bet it will compile just fine.
