    Reading input buffer

    **answered**

    Say a user inputs

    Waffle House 3040

    on a single line. How can I read those separately? say I want to put Waffle in its own char and House in its own char and 3040 in an int.

    I don't fully understand the innerworkings of cin//cout yet so it could be simple... Right now all I can think of is looping into an array, and stopping at white space.

    [edit] - Nevermind I didn't intialize my chars right... I got it now.
