You do(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); NOThave to read the entire code to help me. It's just for your reference.

The problem: I keep getting the message that the file 'algorithm.h' can not be opened. But the header file is very much present in the include folder. What do i do?

The compiler I'm using is tubo c++ 4.5 . The file algorithm.h was not present in the original package, so i downloaded it from the net.

It would be convenient if you could cross-check the definition of algorithm.h:

#ifndef _GLIBCXX_ALGORITHM

#define _GLIBCXX_ALGORITHM 1

#pragma GCC system_header

#include <bits/stl_algobase.h>

#include <bits/stl_construct.h>

#include <bits/stl_uninitialized.h>

#include <bits/stl_algo.h>

#endif /* _GLIBCXX_ALGORITHM */

THE END
