    Quick Question

    If someone chooses the wrong path I want the program to end there but if they choose the right path I want it to keep going.

    Here's the code so far.
    Code:
    int choice2;
    switch (choice2)
    {
        case 1:
        cout << "You walk towards the room.  The hallway you are in feels like it is closing in around you and you get an eery feeling as you push open the door.\n\n";
        break;
        case 2:
        cout << "You sit down on the couch and the television turns on to your amazment!  You try to see what is on the screen but your vision begins to fade.  What is this strange feeling you wonder as everything around you begins to blackout.";
    }
    Thanks in advance.

    -SP

    Look up the exit() function in <stdlib.h> (in C) or in <cstdlib> (in C++, where the function is in the std namespace).

    In future, remember that questions are normally expressed in a way that involves a '?'.
    Right 98% of the time, and don't care about the other 3%.

    Yes, normally. In this case it didn't have to be.

    Thanks.

    Yes, it did.

    That is a statement; ie, what you want it to do. But you never asked a question to get an answer for.
    We simply guessed what you wanted to hear and provided it.

    In the future, try using the ?. It really does help.
