c++ - enum error?

reply "CY" <lcy hkem.com> writes:
I have written a small piece of code as follows:

#include <iostream.h>
int main() {
 enum num {one=1,two,three,four,five};
 num x = three;
 cout << "x=" << x << endl;
 return 0;
}

But when I compile with DM compiler it gives this error:

C:\dm\bin>sc test.cpp
        cout << "x=" << x << endl;
                           ^
test.cpp(6) : Error: ambiguous reference to symbol
Had: ostream::operator <<(char )
and: ostream::operator <<(long double )
--- errorlevel 1

What does it mean and how can I solve this? There is no problem when I
compile it using VC++.

Thanks!
