Hi! I have been programming on and off for a while, so my knowledge is full of holes. That's why I decided to take Computer Science 201N at my high school. My teacher has said a few things that strike me as odd. First, he claimed iostream.h and conio.h were necessary for programming, which I know not to be true, I've compiled programs without them. Also, he uses void main(), not int main(). I want to question him as to these issues, but I don't want to alienate him, and I don't know if it's appropriate to go into such a class knowing so much about the subject and therefore am not looking to be seen as a know-it-all. How should I go about talking to him on these issues?
Also, he claims that some compilers won't work if you don't leave a space between things, ex. cout << "Blah"; In all the compiling that I've done with dev-cpp, I've never had this problem. I've simply written it as cout<<"Blah"; Also, he says that Visual C++ doesn't care either. Is this really an issue?
