And I get this error, thinking it needs a different variable of the iostream?enter image description hereI'm new to this I know I am not posting the way it should look. Like the screen shot is very small, sorry If I cannot get a response I'll try a different angle.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

I can't see a single character on that screenshot. So either upload a bigger one (maybe only the editor part, not whole screen) or, even better, just post your code. – Timo Nov 27 '12 at 13:11
Check this previous post… – jorgehsrama Nov 27 '12 at 13:23
Try asking on stackoverflow. – Flimm Nov 27 '12 at 13:33

You are using <iostream.h> which is deprecated in c++, Instead of that you have to use #include<iostream>
