    Input problem

    Hi guys~

    I require an input that will accept a measurement in feet and pounds, i.e. 5'6

    So I have this so far:

    Code:
        cout << "Enter your height: " ;
        float x, y ;
        cin >> x >> y;
    However, my programme is unable to read the apostrophe.
    Any hints?

    You read two float numbers. You should read a float, a character (the apostrophe) and a float number. Try that. I guess it reads only the 5 eh?

    EDIT: Some code:
    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    using namespace std;
    
    int main(void)
    {
    	float x, y;
    	char c;
    	cin >> x >> c >> y;
    	cout << x << " " << y;
    }
