your code looks fine... could you post the exact error message(s)? (all of them, if there''s more than one.)

Also, what compiler are you using?

Don''t listen to me. I''ve had too much coffee.

Also, I corrected the following weirdness in your code:

* Uses \n and endl randomly
* Uses iostream.h instead of just iostream
* Uses unnecessary headers (which increase compile time)
* Uses both C and C++ stream IO (they may not be compatible so just use one or the other).

#include <iostream>

int main (int argc, char *argv[])
std::cout << "Hello World!" << std::endl;
std::cout << "The size of an int is : \t\t" << sizeof (int) << " bytes." << std::endl;

std::cout << "Press ENTER to continue..." << std::endl;
std::cin.get ();

return 0;

Edit - is there NO WAY to get your code to look the same inside a code or source tag?
