I am taught the old version of c++ in school, the one which uses iostream.h instead of iostream. I wanted an IDE which helps me compile the programs in that old style c++. and I cant use iostream and namespace stuff. I just need a compiler that can compile the old style codes.

You can use Eclipse for that, which will use g++ to compile your code. If you want to use a specific g++ version, you can always install different versions of g++ in your system and force Eclipse to use a specific one to compile.
