    Display Help Needed

    i have a statement:

    Code:
    cout << "The destination is " << place << endl;
    cout << "~~~~~~~~~~~~~"<<endl;
    id like to underline it to the exact character. Place length will change depend on input, so i want to see the underline change in length, depending on how many characters place is.

    Maybe 'strlen' then a small loop to print ~ however many times you need?
    Demonographic rhinology is not the only possible outcome, but why take the chance
