    About string input in C++

    Code:
    #include <cstdio>
    #include <cstdlib>
    
    
    int main( void )
    {
    
         char Buffer[100];
         char* Name= new char[100];
         int number;
         
         
         printf( "Please Input A Number: " );
         scanf( "%s", Name );
         
         
         sprintf( Buffer, "%s", Name );
         printf( "Hi %s!!", Buffer );
         
         
         rewind( stdin );
         rewind( stdout );
         
         delete [] Name;
         
         return(EXIT_SUCCESS);
    }
    The sprintf() function.....is there a C++ equivalent to it? That also handles std::string?

    look up stringstreams in your helpfiles/text book. Might ( should) be in the faq also.
    Free the weed!! Class B to class C is not good enough!!
    And the FAQ is here :- http://faq.cprogramming.com/cgi-bin/smartfaq.cgi

    Why are you rewinding stdin and stdout?
