#include <iostream.h>

void main(){

cout << "Hello World\n";

}




>> only works when using cin, ie:

cin >> variable;

Edit: the "cout" and "cin" functions are just 2 of the many functions defined in the header file "iostream.h".

Further to what Wavarian has said, you will need to create a project first. The simplest project to start with is a "Win32 Console Application".

Get rid of the .h on the end of iostream

then do

#include <iostream>

int main() {
std::cout << "Hello World";
return 0;
}

an alternative when using iostream (without the .h) to having to put std:: in front of all your cout and cin's is to do:

#include
using namespace std;

int main()
{
    cout << "Hello, World\n";
    return 0;
}
