You code looks completely fine to me and compiles without problem using MinGW on Windows XP.

I have to say my suspicions as soon as you mentioned "Borland C++" since they are not really a compiler writer any more so I am kind of assuming that you are using an out of date compiler.

I would suggest that you try I different more up to date compiler such as MinGW or Microsoft Visual C++ Express Edition (both of which are free).
