    An idea of how this program is supposed to work:
    A user enters any string and the first letter of the message is deciphered using the first cipher alphabet and the second from the second cipher and so on, until the sixth letter of the message appears which starts over again using the first cipher alphabet. All non-alphabetic characters go as it is.

    Now my problem is........before i go on to that...im outta practice in C++ soooo bear with me...newayz,
    1) when a new string is entered why doesnt it go back to the first cipher alphabet? It just continues on where it left it.... what am i DOIng wrong?
    2) what is stdin and stdout? and how is it used?

    Appreciate it!

    F.k.

    After the standard errors about "iostream.h", I get an error about this line:

    const char plainalpha[max]= "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz"; /* plain text */

    jus to capitolize on major's post, the errors on iostream.h are because your using a depreciated header, try this code:

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    
    using namespace std;
