I'm trying to compile cpp code on HP-UX machines. It gave me following errors.
What may be the reason?

Thanks in advance.

#include <iostream.h>
int main()
      int x,y;
      cout << "Enter an integer: ";
      cin >> x;
      y = x * 2;
      cout << "\n" << y <<" is twice " << x <<".\n";
root@localhost> make test
        aCC -O test.cpp  -o test

I think the problem is HP-UX doesn't give c++ compiler for free. I download a evaluation version from hp site and installed. Now it's working. But it's only for 60 days.

I'm going to install gcc now.

Earliar /opt/aCC/lbin/ecom -help was giving same error message.

Now it says

/opt/aCC/lbin/ecom -help
Command-line error #2571: invalid option: -help

1 catastrophic error detected in this compilation.
Compilation terminated.
