are you trying to do this from visual studio? can you post the top of the file (the part with the #include lines) here in the forum?

just a quick note on the pedantic front, you return value from main should be an 'int', not 'void'. but that isn't causing your problem...

what is the name of the file you have this code in? it should have a .cpp extension. further, how is it that you are trying to build the code? can you describe that process? it will help in determining why you are seeing this problem.

It depends on your compiler. You should basically set your include paths properly, then it will compile.

Um, are you writing C or C++?
iostream.h doesnt exist anymore, no standard c++ headers have .h at the end. and if it is c++, you either want <string> or <cstring> for the old C header.

i need to you show me the line you type into cmd that gives you this error message. it is likely you need to include a '/I' options (which you should be able to find from your compiler documentation) pointing to the right files, but the advice below also holds, try removing the '.h' from the end of the filenames in your #include lines. they are no longer required and in some cases will generate the error you are seeing.

just so you know
no worries about being 14. we focus on what is real around here, and your age doesn't really matter. you should, however, tone down the whining (begging to be helped really won't get you anywhere). it is obvious you are a n00b from they way you are talking, i didn't need it pointed out to me

anyway, let me know how it is going after you echo the text you are typing into cmd.exe.

the error message you get is because bcc32.exe can't find the files iostream.h and string.h. you need to tell bcc32.exe how to find these files.

first, your're going to have to find the path to these files by searching for them on your computer. the are probably in c:\borland\... somewhere. second, you're going to have to use the /I option to bcc32.exe and include this path:

c:\borland\bcc55\bin\bcc32.exe /Ic:\path\to\includes template.cpp

i don't have documentation for bcc32.exe handy, so it *might* not be /I you need to use. you'll have to check your compiler documentation for how to specify "include header paths" if it doesn't work.

good luck!
