    string arrays

    hi. in C i can use gets function to create a string array but in c++
    how can i do this?
    for instance:
    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <string>
    
    main() {
    string *sentence;
    
    cin>>sentence;
    
    cout<<sentence;
    }
    is that true?

    not quite.
    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <string>
    
    using namespace std; // using new style headers everything is in namespace std
    
    int main()
    {
    string sentence; //u need object not pointer
    cin>>sentence;
    cout<<sentence<<endl;
    return 0;
    }
    Free the weed!! Class B to class C is not good enough!!
