    Digital Mars - unable to open input file 'iostream'

    I'm using "Digital Mars" to compile the following program:

    #include <iostream>
    using namespace std;

    int main() {
    cout <<"My name is Abder-Rahman";
    return 0;

    And, this is what I get:

    C:\Users\Software Engineer\Desktop\C++\dm852c\dm\bin>dmc print1
    Fatal error: unable to open input file 'iostream'
    --- errorlevel 1

    Any ideas on that?

    Re: Digital Mars - unable to open input file 'iostream'

    Test whether or not you are able to include <iostream.h>. Even if you are, this is not a solution----if you can include this but not <iostream> it indicates the compiler is woefully out of date and you need a newer one.

    If you can't include that either, then the compiler may simply be misconfigured.

    Thanks Lidley.

    Digital Mars comes as a zipped folder, I unzipped the folder once again and now it works. Thanks.
