    Post Having Problems with char equaling another char

    I am trying to make a program.. where yo guess a word ..lets say magic. and the program will reconize the word and print it up on a chart.

    i've tried everything i can think of and its probably a really simple answer but the answer to this problem will be greatly appreciated.

    I'm Using Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0.

    CODE: ______________________________________________


    if (quest==1)
    {
    gotoxy(40,8);
    cout<< "Guess the Word : "<<endl;
    while (ans1==false)
    {
    gotoxy(40,9);
    cout<<" "<<endl;
    gotoxy(40,9);
    cin>>guess;

    if (guess == answer[1])
    {
    gotoxy(1,1);
    cout<<"M"<<endl;
    gotoxy(3,1);
    cout<<"a"<<endl;
    gotoxy(5,1);
    cout<<"g"<<endl;
    gotoxy(7,1);
    cout<<"i"<<endl;
    gotoxy(9,1);
    cout<<"c"<<endl;

    ans1=true;
    }

    It would be practical if you'd add what kind of variables thse are. I'm guessing now that both guess and answer[1] are strings (character array)?
    You'll have to use the strcmp function from String.h. It's like this:
    if (strcmp(guess, answer[1])==0)
    {Guess correct!}
