    It's hard to tell what the problem is - is it that you have to type two different things (hitting enter twice) before you get your answer, or is it that you can type in anything and it always says "Hi bob"?

    If it's the first one, there is a bug in MSVC++ 6.0, which may or may not be there in 5.0 (I don't know anything about 5.0). Try this link just in case it fixes your problem, it refers to both 5.0 and 6.0. Scroll down to the part about <string>.

    Try giving us the code so far, and what your concept is (what you are trying to do).
