Using the Classic iostream Library

C++, like C, has no built-in input or output statements. Instead, I/O facilities are provided by a library. The C++ compiler provides both the classic implementation and the ISO standard implementation of the iostream classes.

This chapter provides an introduction to the classic iostream library and provides examples of its use. This chapter does not provide a complete description of the iostream library. See the iostream library man pages for more details. To access the classic iostream man pages type the command: man -s 3CC4 name
