    Beginner need help with errors

    Need help, errors messages added as comments after line.

    #include <iostream>
    int Add (int x, int y)
    {
    cout << "In Add(), received " << x << " and " << y << "\n"; //Error C2065: 'cout' : undeclared identifier
    return (x+y);
    }
    int main()
    using namespace std; //Error C2143: syntax error : missing ';' before 'using'

    { //Error C2447: '{' : missing function header

    cout << "I'm in main()!\n";
    int a, b, c;
    cout << "Enter two numbers: ";
    cin >> a;
    cin >> b;
    cout << "\nCalling Add()\n";
    c=Add(a,b);
    cout << "\nBack in main().\n";
    cout << "c was set to " << c;
    cout << "\nExiting...\n\n";
    return 0;

    Please, replace this very bad made screenshot with an original code block (using Code tags of course!)

    Re: Beginner need help with errors

    First thing I see is that you are using cout in your Add function, but you haven't used the namespace yet.

    Two ways to start is to change
    Code:
    int Add (int x, int y)
    {
        cout << "In Add(), received " << x << " and " << y << "\n"; //Error C2065: 'cout' : undeclared identifier
        return (x+y);
    }
    to
    Code:
    int Add (int x, int y)
    {
        std::cout << "In Add(), received " << x << " and " << y << "\n"; //Error C2065: 'cout' : undeclared identifier
        return (x+y);
    }
    or you can move
    Code:
    using namespace std; //Error C2143: syntax error : missing ';' before 'using'
    just after the include
    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    using namespace std; //Error C2143: syntax error : missing ';' before 'using'
    Hope that helps.
