I get this error "This Program cannot be run under dos" when i compile and try to run this.

#include <iostream.h>

int main()
std::cout << "Test\n";
int x;
std::cin >> x;
return 0;

do i not know something?

You use the old *.h and the new std namespace?

What compiler are you using?

9/10 of the voices in my head believe that you are compiling a Win32 Console app

i learned to use iostream.h? umm u have to use namespace std or something? talk to jessie liberty about that one.
how do u compile a dos exe? special compiler or someting?

You would need a genuine DOS compiler, like Turbo C.
