That C++ link is fairly horrific...nobody uses 16-bit systems any more unless they *really* need to, and in that case they're usually people who have been forced to write something for it.

I believe raw sockets are available in Win2K as well, but you have to be Administrator. IIRC, Raw sockets are enabled for any user in WinXP? *shudder* Horrible security hole...

Some of those were valid points, but here's where I pick out the techie one ;)
Devices. I don't know what's worse, /dev or ploughing through the Win2K registry trying to find exactly what "PCI...

Probably no limits (on a 32-bit compiler) up to around a couple of gigs, might hit problems with more than a few tens of megabytes due to memory fragmentation - after about a megabyte you're better...

For the trouble it causes, either keep comments up to date or get rid of them ;)
Otherwise, people just end up ignoring them because they're too cynical to think they'll be of any use.

What if they supply more than 20 characters (null terminator!)?
Easier and safer to use a string:
using namespace std;

Great stuff :)

Not from main() you don't ;)
Somewhere in the standard, it says that if you don't have an explicit return statement, the compiler should substitute code for "return 0" at the end :D

It should be in conio.h for the Borland compiler. There's no mention of it in Visual C++.
PS: Always use <iostream> not <iostream.h> which is the older, deprecated style.
PPS: cgkanchi -- why...

Clear Screen: clrscr() with Borland, only way I found with VC++ was system("cls") or one of the Console functions. For Unix, look at curses.
File: I would suggest using the file streams with C++,...
