cout << "Variable foobar = " << foobar << endl;
say foobar = 5, then on the screen it would print out:
Variable foobar = 5
if you're using it to print a linked list to the screen, put a loop(for or while or the like) around the cout command and increment which part of the linked list you print each time thorugh the outer loop.  Therefore producing a printout of your linked list.  Good Luck!

The cout comand returns itself! if that makes it clear!?!?

So << << shouldn't do anything -> may be syntax error

If you want to print a list you should overload the cout << operator.

want the code??

bradz,  e mail me.  kellyj@r2d2.bpginc.com.  I don't what you mean, "cout returns itself".  do you mean it is recursive.?

and thanks for the linked list answer.  A head node, after all that I have done and I did not think of that,   boy I am a homer.

I'm new to this forum, but I was jsut wondering what was wrong with the first answer?  If it's wrong, I shouldn't be expert status because it seems totally correct to me.  I'm I wrong?
