Hi all
I am including string.h in my code, but when I use the class string I get an
error from the compiler that it`s an unknown identifier.
any ideas?
thanks

Also , are you trying to using string.h from cstdlib, or std::string's
string.

If the latter, then the new convention is to not include the .h at the end,
ie

#include <string>
#include <iostream>

and the old C headers are now

#include <cstring>
#include <cstdio>

etc...

just FYI.
