    how to line change in a console application

    how to change a line in a console application?

    #include <iostream.h>

    int main ()
    {
    cout << "first line";
    cout << "second line";
    cout << "and last line"<<endl;
    int exit;
    cin >> exit;
    return 0;
    }


    This will only be 1 whole line, can anyone explain to me how to get the lines seperated?

    thanks

    You need to break the lines using endl


    Code:
     #include <iostream.h> 
    
     int main () 
    { 
    cout << "first line" << endl;
    cout << "second line" << endl;
    cout << "and last line"<<endl; 
    int exit; 
    cin >> exit; 
    return 0; 
    }
    Prove you can code in C++ or C# at TopCoder, referrer rrenaud

    Or to save time put a '\n' in there,

    EG:
    PHP Code:
    cout << "Firstline\nSecondline";

    OR

    cout << "Firstline\n";
    cout << "Secondline"

    I think it would be better for him/her to use endl because it clears the buffer so he/she doesn't have to worry about those problems so early.
