View Full Version : what do you prefer

I'm a curious, which header/library do you prefer to use in C or C++ programming I/O, <stdio.h> or <iostream.h>, I myself - a definite <stdio.h>. My reason being is that I believe I have more control (placebo).

(fun post of the decade)

normally iostream.h, conio.h and then whatever specific headers i need.

and is the board doing random logouts again or is it just me?

its the way i was taught
and the way i've seen it done in pretty much every single book i've seen on the subject.

Well, the most obvious answer is that I use whatever is best suited to the job at hand. If a hammer is your tool of preference then would you still use a hammer to tighten a nut?

I thought I asked a similar question in DOS programming: cout or printf

"if you can't fix it with a hammer, then maby it isn't worth fixing"
