    Replacing embedded text with getline(cin, input); ?

    Could someone show me what is the code sequence to accept user input at the keyboard. I know how to get the text. I need to know how to replace the line **account1.debit( 25.0 )** with the actual user input number that is in --- ** getline(cin, input)**

    The function in place works well for embedded data. I just want to use the number from the keyboard input and not embedded data.

    Thanks in advance


    Code:
    int main()
    {
    string input;
    
    cout << "Account1 balance is $50,00 << endl;
    cout << "Enter an amount to withdraw from Account 1: ";
    getline(cin, input);
    
    cout << "Attempting to debit $25.00 from account1." << endl;
    account1.debit( 25.0 );
    }

    Code:
    // same code as before....
    
    float  x;
    
    cout << "enter debit amount  :"
    cin >> x;
    
    cout << "debiting" << x << "from account1" << endl;
    account1.debit( x );
    Alternatively if you already have the value from getline(cin, input) ... just use account.debit(input);




    And it's very bad form to start a new thread with the same question...
