You mean #include <stack>
using std::stack;
stack<int> stk;

>>#include <string.h>
Try #include <string>

Try including <string>. For example,

#include <iostream>
#include <iomanip>
#include <string>

using namespace std;

int main()
{
    string st;

    cin >> st;
    cout << st << endl;

    return 0;
}

Cheers!

What you are missing is, like Exceter mentioned, using namespace std;
If you don't want to write that, try writing
using std::string;
or put std::string instead of string whenever you declare a string variable.

Also, you shouldn'tbe using the .h extensions because these files are non-standard. Just use the same names without he .h part, as I did in my example.
