I think its only for C++. I have never seen any C syntax that uses cin or cout. Anyway my programming skills are mainly in python with only a bit of C and C++ so I could be wrong.

It's part of the C++ iostream library. C has nothing like that.

The c conventions are to use scanf and printf.

Rationale: C doesn't allow operator overloading so there's no way to write a type that can print things in response to being <<'d.
