yo yo, I'm using the Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0. The compiler isn't recognizing any include files, one of the errors that i get when i compile is that cout an undeclared identifier. this is what the include files look like in the source code:
#include <iostream>
#include <fstream>
#include <string>

I tried changing them into .h files ( #include "iostream.h" ) but that didn't help. I need help with this asap, so any input on this problem will be greatly appreciated.

#include <iostream>
#include <fstream>
#include <string>

using namespace std;

// other stuff
