Classic C++ iostreams

Classic iostreams (libiostream) is the original 1986 version of iostreams, which was replaced in the 1998 C++ standard. The library is specified with the –library=iostream option. Classic iostreams was not a standard, so no two implementations of this library are the same and code that uses it is not portable and is not compatible with the C++ standard library. Use the iostream functions provided by the C++ Standard library.
