    cin to array of chars

    Hello everyone,
    Im trying to scan in an several chars from the console using cin. The format will be one char sperated by a space. I want to put them in an array of chars. I dont want to have to hit return between each char.

    Example

    Thanks

    For 5 characters seperated by spaces the simplest way would likely be:

    Code:
    char array[5];
    cin >> array[0] >> array[1] >> array[2] >> array[3] >> array[4];
