I am writing a small console based application that will continue to take character input from a prompt within the program. When the user runs the application, I'd like to display a welcome message explaining what they can and cannot do. ive written one that spans 5 console lines. I know that I can define strings in the current file and use them, but it makes my driver code really nasty (A huge string at the beginning). I was wondering if its good practice to define them in a seperate (hearder?) file to keep it seperate and to keep things tidy. If so.... how? Thanks a lot.
