    Question Cin.getline skip data

    Record is
    char FirstName[25];
    char Address[40];
    int Age;

    cout<<"enter first: ";
    cin>>Firstname;

    cout<<"enter address: "<<endl;
    cin.getline(address, 60);

    cout<<"enter age: ";
    cin>>age;

    output:
    enter first: MyName
    enter address:
    enter age: 11

    Problem: After entering firstname, I don't get a chance to enter address when it already skip to getting my age.

    What could be the problem? How do I solve this? Thanks.

    cin.ignore(80, '\n'); should soak up enough stray junk.
    I haven't used a compiler in ages, so please be gentle as I try to reacclimate myself. :P
