    First post: few basic questions:

    Hello, I would just like to introduce myself to the board. My name is nick, i'm a computer networking student at a local tech college here in minnesota and i'm just starting to learn c++. I registered to this board in the hopes that i can find some good, quality help and guidance throughout my c++ prgramming class and beyond.

    So here are a few of my questions:

    attached is a text document with my code - if someone has time to run it, you can see the problems.

    If you run the program, enter the proper username and password - the program will still do the while loop until it loops 3 times - this is undesirable!

    second, after going through the while loop, even with the correct pw, it still continues then outputs the "your aren't a user" thing.

    how can i fix this??

    umm, i'm hope someone understodd that!



    anyway, if nothing, else, i'm sayin' hi!

    thanks for the help,

    You could use a break statemnt to exit the loop upon succesfully entering the correct login. Or simply set your count to 5 when a succesful login occures increment c in the else portion of your if then.

    Your exiting the while loop with a goto statment I don't think that is a good idea.

    sounds good. Thanks for the help. exiting the while loop with a goto is exactly wrong - i have since change that!

    thanks,
