iostream (and all ios headers, etc.) are part of the C++ STL (Standart
Trying to link against them using gcc will not work since these are C++
g++ seems to be handeling this quite easly though... :)
BTW, in the latest STL headers, iostream.h is not used anymore.
all STL classes are encapsulated into a namespace called std.
In order to use cin and cout etc. normally, do:
using namespace std; // invoke std into the global namespace
// Compile/Link with g++, not gcc ! :]
cout << "Mary had a little lamb";
// if you ommit line no. 2 (using namespace std), you could write:
// std::cout << "Mary had a little lamb";
// this will work just fine.
