    Exclamation Flooded :(

    int main()
    {
    again:
    char test[256];
    cout <<"Please enter a word: ";
    cin.get(test,256);
    cout <<"you said" <<test;
    goto again;
    getch();
    return 0;
    }


    It keep getting flooded once I enter a word, what would i expected is wait for keep press [cin.get()] again every time its loop.

    for example:

    1.
    Please enter a word: girls
    you said girls

    2.
    Please enter a word: love
    you said love

    3.
    Please enter a word: sex
    you said sex

    and so on by loop.

    your telling it to goto again before getch ever executes

    i was going to but noone ever told me why its bad.

    cout<<"Enter number of times u want me to run";
    cin>>numof

    for (int i; i <=numof; i++)
    {

    your code
    }

    Using GOTO's in your program creates spaghetti code, i jumps
    all over the program. Very ugly,slow and bad.

    You not getting my point.

    Well I use for-loop this time haha.

    int main()
    {
    char test[256];
    for (int i = 1; i <=6; i++)
    {
    cout <<"Please enter your name: ";
    cin.get(test,256);
    cout <<"you said" <<test;
    }
    return 0;
    }

    it still flooding me without waiting for me to type a word.

    Once I typed: hello
    then it return stupid output (it didnt ask me to enter a word on second loop and so on [cin.get fail on fail if looping])

    Please enter your name: Hello
    you saidHelloPlease enter your name: you saidPlease enter your name: you saidPle
    ase enter your name: you saidPlease enter your name: you saidPlease enter your n
    ame: you said

    Try emptying test before every input, and replace

    Code:
     cout <<"you said" <<test;
    with

    Code:
     cout <<"you said" <<test << endl;

    Actually it's not slow. The opposite in fact.
    I agree that it is obsolete though .

    Please some one help me out.

    The problem is while it is looping - it ignore the cin.get()
    I want something i can type a word again again and again (looping)
