    Smile C++ code in 1999

    Hi all:

    I have a C++ program for me to use, but it is written in 1999, and I notice that the some aspects of C++ program now different from that in 1999, such as "using namespace std" and "#include <cmath>," I wonder where can I get a complete list of changes.

    More specifically, I have the following header headers, some of them may be in old style, but I just don't know:

    #include <stdio.h>

    #include <string.h>

    #include <float.h>

    #include <values.h>

    #include <limits.h>

    #include <ostream.h>

    #include <assert.h>

    #include <stdlib.h>

    #include <math.h>

    #include <iostream.h>

    #include <sys/types.h>

    #include <sys/stat.h>

    #include <fcntl.h>

    #include <unistd.h>

    #include <io.h>

    #include <fstream.h>

    #include <time.h>

    #include <malloc.h>

    #include <unistd.h>

    #include <ctype.h>

    All of them are, with the exception of values.h, which isn't a standard or pre-standard header. Most likely it's a compiler extension or a user defined header.

    Please don't change your post so that the answers are invalidated. Now you have all kinds of non-standard headers by every definition of the word. I would recommend not trying to update it if you don't have to.
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    I think I need to use the code. The code won't compile under MS Visual C++.Net 2003 version. Another possible solution is to get the C++ compiler in 1999 version, but I just cannot find one yet.

    Well if you are a coder you should be able to translate it to the standard. Google is amazing when it comes to giving answers, you should try there.

    A C++ compiler built in 1999??

    Why don't you go to Bloodshed's website and download an earlier version of dev-C++?
    The latest is 4.992 and the most acient one I have had is version 4.880. The compiler was pretty rubbish and any silly warnings I got with that compiler are eradicated in the 4.992 version.

    But if you want a good one, go for MSVC++2005 express edition. You can download it free from Microsofts website. I also own and belive it to be an excellent compiler, one of the best IDE's and compiler set I am ever likely to own.
