I dont think this is possible but can I use cin to get whats inside a char? could also use string..
this is gonna be used in a parser so I need to take one char at a time..
char* temp_string = "2*bob";
cin.get(ch) >> temp_string;
the parser should see this as 2 times bob..
I know this exemple doesnt work... its just a guess what it might look like..
