    Unhappy Check if input password is correct

    I have created a login with username and password. But now the username and password is not checked if it's right. So my question is how do I get the program to check in a database if the username and password is correct?

    How can you expect someone to help you without posting some code? We have no idea what your program looks like...

    use the strcmp() function.
    Code:
    #include<iostream.h>
    #include<string.h>
    
    int main()
    {
    	char User_Entered_Password[255], Correct_Password[255] = "the password";
    
    	cout<<"Enter the password:\n";
    	cin.getline(User_Entered_Password, 255, '\n');
    
    	if(!strcmp(User_Entered_Password, Correct_Password))
    	{
    		cout<<"Correct Password!";
    	}
    	else
    	{
    		cout<<"Wrong Password!";
    	}
    
    	return 0;
    }
    Sometimes, the farthest point from the center is the center itself.
