    Arrow Variables, Strings

    I know this may look sad but...Could you help me?

    Here is my code, how do I make this work... I want it so if you press y it says "Good, you may enter the program!" and if you press n it says "You're not an Anime fan?!". Once again here is my code:

    #include <iostream.h>
    int main()
    {
    int fan; ..
    cout<<"Please tell me, are you an Anime fan? (y/n): ";
    cin>>fan;
    if(fan=='y')
    {
    cout<<"Good, you may enter the program!";
    }

    else
    {
    cout<<"You're not an Anime fan?!";
    }
    return 0;
    }


    I crave C++ knowledge.

    << int fan; ..

    Fan should be of type char, and lose the two periods as well.

    uhh, since this is a simple program i dont think it would hurt just to show you:

    Code:
    #include <iostream.h>
    
    char fan;
    
    int main()
    {
          cout<<"Are you an anime fan? (y/n) ";
          cin>>fan;
    
                     if( fan == 'y'){
                           cout<<"Yay, youre an anime fan!";
                      }
                     else if( fan == 'n'){
                           cout<<"No, you cannot continue!!!";
                     }
                     else{
                           cout<<"Enter y or n";
                     }
    getchar();
    return 0;
    }
    You might need a different header for that "getchar()" function. I cant remember right now. But that just stalls the program until enter is pressed.
    What is C++?
