    Is there a user input command without using iostream.h?

    Hi, I got DJGPP, and it doesn't agree with iostream. I doesn't come with iostream, so I took dev-cpp's iostream, tried it, and it said PROCCESS ERROR.

    I don't want to fix DJGPP or IOSTREAM. I just want to know if there is another command that will take user input, and change it into a variable. THX.

    Uh, do you know C/C++ at all?

    Here's some to try:


    Code:
    cin.get(myvar, 20); //Puts first 20 chars user enters (or once newline is detected, which ever comes first) into myvar.
    cin >> myvar; // Put all characters into myvar until newline or space is encountered.

    How about trying the regular stdio.h for I/O.

    cheers

    Don't use scanf(), it will screw up the program. <IT IS DANGEROUS> sine it steps into the ROM often.

    Perhaps if you posted this code, we could tell where the problem was.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
