Compiling error


I am fairly new to coding, and I just can't figure out what I did wrong. It's a fairly simple assignment...


Code:
#include<iostream>
using namespace std;
 
int main() {
                
        double a, b, c, temp;
                
        cout << "Enter three numbers: ";
        cin >> a >> b >> c;
        if( a>b ) {
                temp = a;
                a = b;   
                b = temp;
}
        if( b>c ) {
                temp = b;
                b = c;
                c = temp;
}
        if( a>b) {
                temp = a;
                a = b;   
                b = temp;
}
 
        cout << a << " " << b << " " << c << endl;
        return 0 ;
}
The error is :

Code:
unix2% g++ -o sort3 sort3.cpp (Input)
sort3.cpp:8: error: parse error before numeric constant (Output)

sure about that? it compiles fine on my machine. Maybe you didn't save before you last tried to compile?
