help with if else if statement and characters
i haven't programmed in c++ in probably two years.
i was just bored and trying to make a simple program for myself.
here is the code i am having some trouble with.
i know it's probably smething simple, but i just cant figure it out
and i don't have any books in front of me to look at.
cout << "Did someone else work with you? (y/n)";
cin >> a;
if (a = 'y' || 'Y')
cout << "Enter how many days they helped you: ";
cin >> days;
help = ((d / 2) * days);
cout << "Your helper should be paid: $";
cout << help;
cout << " ";
else if (a = 'n' || 'N')
basically i can't get it to tell whether you enter a y or n.
everythng i want to run for entering y runs no matter what
character you enter. help me please...
