    help on code

    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <conio.h>
    #include <string.h>


    void Password (void);

    main()
    {
    Password();
    }
    void Password(void)
    {
    char Passwordin[20];



    gotoxy(30,4);printf("Password Identification");
    gotoxy(17,8);printf("\t\tPlease enter password : ");
    scanf("%s",Passwordin);

    //check if user entered correct password dcampbell using strcmp

    if(strcmp(Passwordin,"dodon")==0)
    {
    gotoxy(17,10);printf("Correct Password ");
    getch();
    }
    else
    {
    // if password incorrect Password function recalled until correct Password entered
    gotoxy(17,10);printf("\t\tincorrect password\n");
    getch();
    Password();
    }

    }

    The above code when u enter an incorrect password, the program halts and wont give me the option of re-entering a password - any ideas? also how would you be able to have ***** appear on screen as the password being entered instead of the text appearing on screen? cheers

    To make code that would ask to reenter password just put your codw in the infinite loop (while(true) { ..... }; for example).

    Now if you whant ******** do the following:

    char ch[10];
    for(int i=0; i<10; i++)
    {
    char[i] = getch();
    cout << "*";
    {

    that should do it.
    C++ rulez!!!
