Let's change the question to this. I opened a c++ book in 15  minits and made this:

#include <iostream.h>
#include <fstream.h>

int main()
   int count;
   ifstream fin("counter.txt");
   ofstream fut("counter.txt");
   fut << count;
   cout << "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
   cout << count << endl;

Can someone tell me what's wrong with this?

There is two problems:

1. When i try to compile it with gcc -o counter under linux (RH 5.0) I get this:

/tmp/cca004431.o: In function `main':
/tmp/cca004431.o(.text+0x1e): undefined reference to `ifstream::ifstream(int, char const *, int, int)'
/tmp/cca004431.o(.text+0x31): undefined reference to `istream::operator>>(int &)'
/tmp/cca004431.o(.text+0x53): undefined reference to `ofstream::ofstream(int, char const *, int, int)'
/tmp/cca004431.o(.text+0x69): undefined reference to `ostream::operator<<(int)'
/tmp/cca004431.o(.text+0x78): undefined reference to `cout'
/tmp/cca004431.o(.text+0x7d): undefined reference to `ostream::operator<<(char const *)'
/tmp/cca004431.o(.text+0x87): undefined reference to `endl(ostream &)'
/tmp/cca004431.o(.text+0x90): undefined reference to `cout'
/tmp/cca004431.o(.text+0x95): undefined reference to `ostream::operator<<(int)'
/tmp/cca004431.o(.text+0xa0): undefined reference to `ostream::operator<<(ostream &(*)(ostream &))'

It compiles when I use g++ or c++.


When I run it from the prompt It counts and seems to work, but
 when I run it on the www-server it cames to 1 then it stops....

I'l be glad if you can tell me what's stupid with my work to.

You can't compile the above program with gcc since it's a C++ program.  You must use g++.
