    Converting fprint to cout

    Checked the FAQ for a solution - no help.

    I'm using MS visual C++ 6.0. Teaching myself C++.
    Tried to convert a C program. Ran into a problem with a
    printf statement. Can't convert it to a cout.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions. Here is the code:


    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    int main()
    
    {
    	char ch, ans;
    	ch = 'Y';
    
       
    	cout <<"ROUTINE TO CONVERT A CHARACTER TO ITS ASCII VALUE";
        cout << endl <<endl <<endl;
    
    	while (ch == 'Y' || ch == 'y')
    
    	{
    		cout <<"Enter a character   :";
    		cin >> ans;
    		cout << endl;
    
    		
            printf("The ASCII value of %c is %d\n",ans,ans);
    
    
    		cout << endl  <<endl;
    	
    		ch = 'x';
    	    
    	while (ch != 'Y' && ch != 'y' && ch != 'N' && ch != 'n')
        
    	
    	{
    		cout << endl  <<endl;
    		cout <<"    ANOTHER  (Y/N  ?  :  ";
    		cin >> ch;
    	}
    
    	
    	}
    
    	
    
    	return 0;
    
    }

    You could;

    Code:
    cout << "The ASCII value of " << ans << " is " << (int)ans << endl;
