cin and cout are two predefined objects which represent standard input and output stream. The standard output stream represents the screen, while the standard input stream represents the keyboard. These objects are members of iostream class. Hence the header file <iostream.h> should be included in the beginning of all programs.

Escape Sequences

Commonly used escape sequences are \n, \t and \a. The escape sequences are enclosed in single quotes. \n is a new line character and helps in transferring control to the next line. If more than one line is to be skipped, \n is repeated as many times as the number of lines to be skipped. \n can also be combined with any other message string to be displayed. \t is used for giving tab and \a is used for giving a beep.

An abstraction is a simplified description, or specification, of a system that focuses on some essential structure or behavior of a real-world or conceptual object. A good abstraction is one in which information that is significant to the user is emphasized while details that are immaterial, at least for the moment, are suppressed. We use the principles of information hiding to encapsulate these details.
