c++ std namespace program example program


Standard namespace in C++ is used to access standard input and output objects such as cin and cout (console output). In this program example we use standard namespace std witha nd without using namespace directive. When we use namespace directive in program then there is no need to use scope resolution operator with standard objects.

Here we also used endl manipulator that also belong to standard namespace in C++. It is good practice to use namespace directive in C++ programs. This program is compiled and tested using Dev-C++ IDE.
