    Need some Pointers (really new to C++)

    Hey guys im new to C++ and i already have a project for my class i need some tips and help pls

    My Prof asked us to make a program that will ask this question:

    If Applicant is Male:
    if status is Single:
    Enter College Level (if on College) : (requirement 2 yrs)
    Enter Highschool level (if on highschool): (requirement 3yrs
    if status is Married:
    " " " " " " " " requirements 3 yrs)
    " " " " " " " " requirement 4 yrs)
    If Applicant is Female:
    (same as Above)


    This program should tell if the person should get accepted or not.

    and i started with a switch program but im stuck and i dont know what to do would really appreciate some pointers... im really new to this C++ THANX IN ADVANCE!

    The switch-construction could look like something like this:

    Code:
    switch (applicant)
    {
        case male:
            switch (status)
            {
                case single:
                    /* .. */
                    break;
                case married:
                    /* .. */
                    break;
                default:
                    print_error_mg (Invalid status);
                    break;
            }
            break;
        case female:
            switch (status)
            {
                case single:
                    /* .. */
                    break;
                case married:
                    /* .. */
                    break;
                default:
                    print_error_mg (Invalid status);
                    break;
            }
            break;
        default:
            print_error_mg (Invalid sex);
            break;
    }

    Hallo thanx for the reply well i tried this setup

    #include<iostream.h>
    #include<stdio.h>
    char gender;
    int status,college,hs,cl;
    main ()

    {
    cout<<" Enter your Gender : " ;
    cin>> gender;
    switch (gender)
    {
    case 'M':
    cout<<" Your a Male \n";
    cout<<" Enter ur status (press 1(single) press 2 (married):" ;
    cin>> status;
    if (status==1)

    cout<<"Enter Education Level (press 1(highschool) press 2 (college) : " ;
    cin>> college;
    if (college=1)

    cout<<"Enter Highschool level : " ;
    cin>> hs;
    if (hs<3)

    cout<<"Sorry Sir but You are not qualified";
    cout<<"Hallo Sir Pls contact me for more question";

    if (status==2)
    cout<<"Enter Education Level (press 1(highschool) press 2 (college) : " ;

    cin>> college;
    if (college=1)

    cout<<"Enter Highschool level : " ;
    cin>> hs;
    if (hs<3)

    cout<<"Sorry Sir but You are not qualified";
    cout<<"Hallo Sir Pls contact me for more question";



    break;
    case 'F':
    cout<<" Your a Female ";
    break;
    default:
    cout<<" Pls press M or F";
    }
    }

    Please use codetags.

    Use constants to make code reading easier.

    You forgot a lot of { } pairs.

    If the process for Male and Female is equal, why make a difference?

    Code:
    #include<iostream.h>
    #include<stdio.h>
    
    #define MALE    'M'
    #define FEMALE  'F'
    
    enum status
    {
        SINGLE = 1,
        MARRIED
    };
    
    enum education
    {
        HIGHSCHOOL = 1,
        COLLEGE
    };
    
    
    main ()
    {
        char gender;
        int status,college,hs,cl;
    
        cout <<" Enter your Gender : " ;
        cin >> gender;
    
        switch (gender)
        {
            case MALE:
                cout << " Your a Male \n";
                cout << " Enter ur status (press 1(single) press 2 (married): ";
                cin>> status;
    
                switch (status)
                {
                    case SINGLE:
                        cout<<"Enter Education Level (press 1(highschool) press 2 (college) : ";
                        cin>> college;
    
                        if (college = HIGHSCHOOL)
                        {
                            cout<<"Enter Highschool level : ";
                            cin>> hs;
    
                            if (hs < 3)
                            {
                                cout<<"Sorry Sir but You are not qualified";
                                cout<<"Hallo Sir Pls contact me for more question";
                            }
                        }
                        break;
                    case MARRIED:
                        cout << "Enter Education Level (press 1(highschool) press 2 (college) : ";
                        cin >> college;
    
                        if (college == HIGSCHOOL)
                        {
                            cout << "Enter Highschool level : ";
                            cin >> hs;
    
                            if (hs < 3)
                            {
                                cout << "Sorry Sir but You are not qualified";
                                cout << "Hallo Sir Pls contact me for more question";
                            }
                        }
                        break;
                    default:

    you missed the part on using code tags even tho i pefer the php tags. if you just copy an dpaste in thw code it is in a list, if u do something like

    <php>code here</php> but using [ and ] instead of < and > it keeps where yuo indented the code on the post. if you do not indent pointers in your code or lines to be seperarted like the guyy posted previsoulyyou will find programmign harder then it is!

    PHP Code:
    #include<iostream.h>

        switch (
    gender)

    is easier than reading just

    #include<iostream.h>
    #include<stdio.h>

    #define MALE 'M'
    #define FEMALE 'F'

    enum status
    {
    SINGLE = 1,
    MARRIED
    };

    enum education
    {
    HIGHSCHOOL = 1,
    COLLEGE
    };


    main ()
    {
    char gender;
    int status,college,hs,cl;

    cout <<" Enter your Gender : " ;
    cin >> gender;

    switch (gender)
    {
    case MALE:
    cout << " Your a Male \n";

    switch (status)
    {
    case SINGLE:
    cout<<"Enter Education Level (press 1(highschool) press 2 (college) : ";
    cin>> college;

    if (college = HIGHSCHOOL)
    {
    cout<<"Enter Highschool level : ";
    cin>> hs;

    if (hs < 3)
    {
    cout<<"Sorry Sir but You are not qualified";
    cout<<"Hallo Sir Pls contact me for more question";
    }
    }
    break;
    case MARRIED:
    cout << "Enter Education Level (press 1(highschool) press 2 (college) : ";
    cin >> college;

    if (college == HIGSCHOOL)
