    whats wrong with this very simple code?

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    using namespace std;
    int main()                           
    {
    	int val;
    	cout<<"enter a number 1-10";
    	cin>> val;
    	cin.ignore();
    	if ( val != 5 ) {
    		cout<<"wrong/n";
    	}
    	else {
    		cout<<"correct/n";
    	}
    	cin.get()
    }

    You forgot a terminating semi-colon on this line:
    Code:
    cin.get()
    C + C++ Compiler: MinGW port of GCC
    Version Control System: Bazaar
