    Angry Char/Int problems.....

    In the program i am writing, it asks the user to type 1 for this menu, 2 for this, and 3 for another. If the user types anything but 1, 2, or 3, it will go back to the previous menu instead. However i have a problem. If the user types a letter instead of a number, the program simply terminates. To fix this i tried making the variable to hold the menu choice a Char. Now when i did this, it would go back to the previous menu correctly, but if the user typed 1 2 or 3 to go do different menus, it wouldn't go to them...it would just go back to the previous menu instead, without performing the functions called by menu 1 2 or 3. This is really ........ing me off.. any ideas?

    Nevermind, i figured it out
    I just included <string> and defined the menu choice variable as a string.

    Maybe if you want you can try and use a character array, instead of using a string, therefore giving a little bit more protection for what the user inputs.
    tudehopet uses Borland Compiler 5.5
    and Visual C++ 6.
