Linux ( or other UNIX implementations , as I might understood from your /usr/include ) probably do not have the fstream.h I don't know why , but I have this file ... if you want me to mail it .... mail to xmic@freemail.gr

P.S. Since you work on UNIX platforms , there is no guarantee that my file should work on your system .

The /usr/include probably means you have a unix machine.

First, you have to make sure you have a C++ compiler on your machine.  A C compiler will not compile a C++ program no matter how nicely you ask.

Second, the newer C++ compilers follow the standard's practice of ommiting the .h suffix on the standard include files.  Try #include <fstream> instead.

Third, the include files may reside on a different directory.  Search your disk for fstream or fstream.h and tell the compiler to use the directory one of those files resides in as its include directory.  It can be done using a command-line switch (usually -i or -I) or an environment variable, depends on your compiler.
