how to print a string to console in c++

yes its possible to print a string to the console.

#include stdafx.h
#include <string>
#include <iostream>

using namespace std;

int _tmain(int argc, _TCHAR* argv[])
{
    string strMytestString(hello world);
    cout << strMytestString;
    return 0;
}

stdafx.h isnt pertinent to the solution, everything else is.

All you have to do is add:

#include <string>
using namespace std;

at the top.

how to print a string to console in c++

Visual Studio does not support std::cout as debug tool for non-console applications
– from Marius Amado-Alves answer to How can I see cout output in a non-console application?

Which means if you use it, Visual Studio shows nothing in the output window (in my case VS2008)
