Hi all,

At this tutorial site(http://cplus.about.com/library/weekly/aa051202b.htm) it says that to create a string all i have to do is

1) #include <string>

then
2) string thisIsAString

and that's it.

but it doesn't work! i'm sure it's something stupid that i'm doing
i use MS vis. c++ 6.0

thx nick

Sample code

#include <iostream>
#include <string>

int main () {
       string str1 = "Hello" ;
       string str2 ( "World" ) ;
       string str3 = str1 + str2 ;
       cout << str1 ;
       cout << str2 ;

}
