    Two Questions

    1.


    cout<<"blah";

    cot<<"blah";



    How do I make this show up as:

    blah
    blah

    instead of

    blahblah?

    2. How do I make dialogs instead of using Command Prompt to run it?

    I am using Dev-C++ 4.9.6.0. Thanks.

    Code:
    cout << "blah\n blah";
    
    // or
    
    cout << "blah" << endl << "blah"
    I am against the teaching of evolution in schools. I am also against widespread
    literacy and the refrigeration of food.

    1.
    Code:
    // to take a new line to one of the following
    // you could do it like this
    cout << "\n";
    // or like this
    cout << endl;
    2. I dont really know what you mean, but to get into windows programming, find out about the win32bit API.

    Code:
    // instead of using this:
    cin >> char_array;
    // use this
    cin.getline(char_array, 100, "\n"); // cin.getline(variable to read, amount of characters to read, what character to read up to)

    so it has nothing to do with the Char thing? it will save stuff even with a space?


    I want something like Hello World to show up as Hello World, not just Hello

    I tried that and it returned me this compile error:

    13 C:\Documents and Settings\Reuben\My Documents\crapp.cpp
    no matching function for call to `_IO_istream_withassign::getline (char[100], int, const char[2])'


    what do i do

    the whole code:;



    #include <iostream.h>

    int main()
    {

    cout<<"I demand your name";
    cout<<"\n";
    cout<<"### Blah ###";
    cout<<"\n";
    cout<<"### Testers: DO NOT GIVE THIS TO YOUR FRIENDS OR ANYBODY ELSE ###";
    cout<<"\n";
    char insane[100];
    cin.getline(insane, 100, "\n");
    count<<insane;
    cin.get();

    cin.get();
    cin.get();
    return 0;
    }
