"Missing <iostream.h>, C++ compilation not possible"

April 02, 2014  |  By defrancis7

 |  Version: Orwell Dev-C++ 5.6.2

Pros

2014 release seems to install correctly from CNET.com.

Seems to compile C console and windows programs.

Nice IDE. Able to use C programs immediately after install.

Free

Cons

After online install, I can not compile even a simple C++ console program. I receive this error message: "fatal error: <iostream.h> not such file or directory"

Summary

I downloaded this C/C++ compiler, (Orwell Dev-C++, 2014 release, from this site), because I wanted to be able to do some simple programs in C++. My system is Win 7.0 64-bit, 2GB mem, and 250 GB hard drive.

The fact that <iostream.h>, an essential C++ .h file, is absent makes me wonder what other files that are needed for C++ are missing.

"Unfortunatly it crashes"

September 19, 2010  |  By overlordthor

 |  Version: Dev-C++ 4.9.9.2

Pros

It does a good job when it doesn't crash, easy to use, and helpful, but...

Cons

It crashes frequently, for no apparent reason, I'm typing in a line, and then it freezes and never comes out of it.

Summary

If there was someone working on these bugs and updated it to fix them, it'd be great, however, right now, its a little bugged and I'm going to find a new program to use.

"Outdated and unnecessary."

December 02, 2009  |  By jasonbradadams

 |  Version: Dev-C++ 4.9.9.2

Pros

Easy to use.
Simple interface.

Cons

Buggy.
Outdated.
Unmaintained.

Summary

This piece of software is a relic of older times and is no longer necessary given the range of superior alternatives now available for free. Dev-C++ has not been updated for years, and the numerous bugs present in the package will therefore NEVER be fixed.

No person new to programming should download this package.
