    TRY THE FAQ.

    Look for the rand() function and learn about pointers, especially char ones.
    Do not make direct eye contact with me.

    You can use an array of chars like
    char name[30] but that only read up until a space i BELIEVE.

    also use a string included in the string library

    string name;

    and use getline function to input the name.

    getline(cin, name, 30);
