    endl or \n for newlines.

    i.e.

    cout << "message" << endl;

    or

    cout << "message" << '\n';

    also, check the faq.

    What exactly do you mean by breaks? If you mean line breaks, its easy; just do:
    cout << message << "\n" << message2;

    this would display like:
    message
    message2

    Its that simple.

    If you're new, you should probably check out some of the tutorials on sites like gamedev.net and cprogramming.com (this bb's host site). Those will help you a lot.

    well if message and message2 are char*'s which contain "message" and "message2" respectively then it would.

    Also, you could do this:
    Code:
    cout << "message1\nmessage2";
    This would output:

    message1
    message2
    Just Google It. √
