    easy if statement

    How could I design an if statement to where it would return an error message if the user did not enter the values 1-31.

    Like so:
    PHP Code:
    cout << "Please enter the desired day (choose from 1-31) ";
        
    cin >> dayNum;
        if(
    dayNum!=&& dayNum!=&&dayNum !=&&...)// need to make this more simple!!!!!
        
    {
    cout << "Invalid entry\n" << endl;
            
    menu(proceed);
        }

        
    cout << "You are correct sir!\n" << endl

    Code:
    if( dayNum<1 || dayNum>31 )
    {
         cout <<  "Error Tastic!"
    }

    Maybe a neighbor is tossing leaf clippings on your lawn, looking at your woman, or harboring desires regarding your longboat. You enslave his children, set his house on fire. He shall not bother you again.
