You can''t use the standard insertion and exraction operators with the ostream/istream classes because the left and right shift operators are not overloaded to display the __int64 datatype.

If you wanted to be able to do such a thing, you would have to overload the << and >> operators to something like:


  
ostream& operator<<( ostream& os, const __int64 value );
//and

istream& operator>>( istream& os, __int64& variable );


The problem is that for the definition you''d probably end up having to cast the __int64 data into a datatype that already has an associated overloaded operator. Otherwise, you''ll have to do a little more code to be able to display the value using the same syntax.
