A sample file test.C compilation attempt with g++ :
root at om-gta02:~/kanth/c_prgs# cat test.C

int x;
cout<<"Testing G++"<<endl;

root at om-gta02:~/kanth/c_prgs# g\+\+ -o test test.C
test.C:1:19: error: iostream: No such file or directory
test.C: In function 'int main()':
test.C:5: error: 'cout' was not declared in this scope
test.C:5: error: 'endl' was not declared in this scope
root at om-gta02:~/kanth/c_prgs#


It shows error with iostream : Where should i include the header files if at
all. And where do i get Header files from(i read some where that normal
header files cannot be added). Am i required to install an other packages?

Thanks in advance....
