GCC 3.2 is close but not quite; see comp.lang.c++.* where it fails.

One should get used to it (specifying 'std' as the namespace, where
appropriate of course) or one would face mighty trouble when the
time comes to write classes.

In the mean time, Jason(OP?) could put the the following after
including '<iostream>'...

  using namespace std;

...in lieu of prefixing 'cout' w/ 'std::'.

(Are we off topic yet?)
