    After the switch statement?

    Code:
    #include <cstdlib>
    #include <iostream>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    int main(int argc, char *argv[])
    {
        char namen[100];
        int initial;
        int strength;
        int agility;
        int defense;
        
        cout<<"What would you like to do?";
        cout<<"\n1.New game\n2.Load game\n3.Exit\n";
        cin>>initial;
        switch(initial){
        case 1:
        cout<<"Enter your name:";
        cin>>namen;
        cout<<namen<<" is it. Alright then";
        cout<<"Enter your strength agility and defense(must=20):\n";
        cin>>strength>>agility>>defense;
        if(strength+agility+defense==20)
        cout<<"\nyay!\n";
        break;
        case 2:
        cout<<"Not availiable yet";
        break;
        case 3:
        return 0;
        break;
        default:
        cout<<"error";
        }
        cout<<"                        Welcome to naushmien\n\n*Dramatic Music*\n\n";
        
        
        
        
        system("PAUSE");
        return EXIT_SUCCESS;
    }
    This is the code from my MUD. I need to know how to make it so case 2 and 3 don't display all the code after the switch statment
    for now. When I actually implement loading I want it to display the code after the switch.
    My computer is awesome.

    return 0;

    How about using some indentation in your code?

    How do I make it stop so they can read it? Then have it exit. I thought about system pause, but I remember someone telling me not to use it.
    What parts of the code do I indent?

    Your compiler should take care of it, if it doesn't then I suggest an upgrade.

    Look at

    and

    One, of those might serve you well

    Not sure if this is what you need but why not use a bool? If they enter case 3 then set bool true then do an if statement to see if the bool is true or false. Hope it helped in a way

    The first one isn't what I needed. The second on helped, but I don't see where I am supposed to specify the time in seconds or something like that. That is in C right? I don't know the slightest bit of C so I don't know how to convert it to C++.

    cin.ignore(100); //skips over up to 100 characters that might still be in the input stream
    cin.get(); //waits for the user to enter one character, so if the user hits any key, the program will end.

    I would suggest re-reading a tutorial on functions and then re-read the page I showed you. It should answer your question.

    Sorry, 7stud but that doesn't help. I put it in the program, but instead of going on to the code after the switch right away it did after I hit button?
