    cout << "hit the space bar to find out the ASCII integer value for it " <<
    char dummy;
    cin >> dummy;
    cout << "= " << (int)dummy << endl;
    cout << "and hit the enter key to find out the ASCII integer value for it ";
    cin >> dummy;
    cout << "= " << (int)dummy;

    ascii codes

    when you press enter, two characters are entered: carriage return (CR) and line feed (LF).
    According to my ASCII table,
    CR = 13
    and
    LF = 10
    (those are decimal, not hex)
    .

    Again according to my ASCII table, try 32 for space. If that doesn't work, i would try 0 (zero). If that doesn't work, try ' '.
