Linker Error

I compiled the file, it showed no errors in Turbo C++. But when I run it , I get this error - "Linker Error: Unable to open file '..\SOURCE\MAIN.EXE'. I deleted the file and again pasted the file in the same directory but it showed the same error.

Why are you using Turbo C++ in the first place? Go get MinGW or VC++.

Seriously, I'd rather have Dev C++

(It's a good sign its outdated when you see a standard library header with '.h' after it)

I don't understand this error, are you trying to link to your executable? Don't do that. Also you should get a better IDE, the fact that this one assumes you're using the std namespace without your explicitly declaring it is another bad sign.

@ Fred: The .h extension just means that the header is meant for an application written in C instead of C++. It indicates that it does not use any features that are part of the C++ standard but not the C standard.
@Computergeek01: iostream.h and fstream.h do not exist in the C standard

That's handy to point out to the OP, but I thought I worded that carefully enough. I said that they do not use any features that are part of the C++ but not the C standard, not that that the files themselves are part of the C standard. The example I had in mind was the WinAPI, which use '.h' to indicate what files are compatible with C.
> it does not use any features that are part of the C++ standard but not the C standard.
I have no idea how to read that.
The `but not the C standard' confuses me.

I guess that it means `it is compatible with C'
Which is false, as cout and cin use operator overloading

So, ┬┐do you mind to reword it?
