    Could someone tell me

    cout << "max(1,2)==" << max(1,2) << endl;
    cout << "max(2,1)==" << max(2,1) << endl;
    cout << "max('a','z')==" << max('a','z') << endl;
    cout << "max(3.14,2.72)==" << max(3.14,2.72) << endl;

    what does cout mean? i can not compile w/o stating a cout.

    Moved to C++ programming forum.

    I suggest that you post the smallest and simplest program that demonstrates the error.

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.
