    cout and cin

    is it possible to create something like cout, but which can handle both input and output? i.e.:
    Code:
    int temp_in=0;
    while(1) {
    cboth << "type a number: ";
    cboth >> temp_in;
    cboth << "\nyou typed the wrong number. try again\n";
    }
    (i know it's an endless loop, meant to aggrivate the user)

    CTRL C or a baseball bat stops all running loops.

    sure, but i think it could would making debugging difficult. you'll have to overload the >> and << operators.
