Are you sure you are using Borland C++ Builder (it's for Windows)??? Is that what you are using... or is it simply a compiler for DOS?? Anyway, you should #include all the header files that you need...

exampe....

#include "MyHeaderFile.h"
if the header file is in your INCLUDE folder then you use
#include <MyHeaderFile.h>

YOu usually have to show the full path.. I don't know about all the compilers, but that's the way mine works.. (it's an old one for DOS)....

If you are using Borland C++ Builder then you should create a folder and out all the files from your project there... Then you put all the header files at the same folder, and do this///

#include "myheaderfile.h"

for each of the header files that you have...

Hope this helps...

Unfortunately, I am away from home now so I don't have builder with me.  But you want to create a "win32 console project" for this.  A "win32 console program" is like a DOS program or like a program that standard C++ was designed to run as.  It has a standard output device (the screen) and a standard input device (the keyboard) that work like standard C++ requires.  A windows GUI program (the other type of program that can be created by builder) does not have these standard devices and thus will not compile stnadard C++ code.

If I remember correctly the way to create a win32 console project is a little missleading.  I think you with want to selected like a windows GUI icon and then under there select a win32 console icon.


I hope that helps.
