RUn this program...

#include <iostream>
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
main()
{
   cout.setf(ios::hex);
   cout.setf(ios::showbase);
   cout << 100 ;              
   return 0;
}

Why not displaying 0X64 ? (Which is the expected value)

For  dec, oct and hex you need to set the second parameter of setf to basefield:
   cout.setf(ios::hex, ios::basefield);

cout.unsetf(ios::dec);
before all.
