RE: is the c code in gcc comiled sequentially???

I recommend Langer and Kreft's book, "Standard C++ IOStreams and Locales:
 Advanced Programmer's Guide and Reference" for a full explanation of iostreams
and the underlying classes.
Be aware that flush (which writes out any buffered characters) is invoked by endl,
so any statements written similar to the following should work as you were
expecting :
  std::cout << "your text here" << std::endl ;
