: is it acceptable to declare the i/o stream (and the input and output files) globally?
Nope. A stream variable is just a variable. It's no more acceptable for a stream to be global than for any other variable to be global.
otherwise, input and output functions don't really work...
Mine do. Think about it... again, there's nothing special about stream variables (versus string or double for example).
