    Q to quit help

    Hi

    Below is a script that im making. Its going to be a simple phone directory. You Enter A Name and it will give you that persons phone number..

    Neways..I was wondering how you would impliment a Press Q To Quit in there. Ive tried the if(name == 'q') but it doesnt compile nicely

    Cheers For The Help

    Alex

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <cstdio>
    using namespace std;
    
    int main () {
    	int i;
    	char name[80];
    	char numbers[10] [80] = {
    		"Alex", "4783748738378",
    		"Anita", "334455235342",
    		"Martin", "015223354666"
    	};
    	
    	cout << "\nPLEASE ENTER THE NAME (q To Quit): ";
    	cin >> name;
    	
    
    		for(i=0; i <= 10; i =+ 2)
    		if(!strcmp(name, numbers[i])) {
    			cout << "The Number Is: " << numbers[i+1] << "\n";
    		}
    	
    	
    	
        return 0;
    }

    Ok..ive added the suggest line of code..The q to quit now works..however if I enter a name..nothing happens. I think it could be something with the position of the inserted line of code..hummmm

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <cstdio>
    using namespace std;
    
    int main () {
    	int i;
    	char name[80];
    	char numbers[10] [80] = {
    		"Alex", "4783748738378",
    		"Anita", "334455235342",
    		"Martin", "015223354666"
    	};
    	
    	cout << "\nPLEASE ENTER THE NAME (q To Quit): ";
    	cin >> name;
    	
    
    		for(i=0; i <= 10; i =+ 2)
    		if( (strcmp(name,"q")==0) || (strcmp(name,"Q")==0) )return 0; 
    	    if(!strcmp(name, numbers[i])) {
    			cout << "The Number Is: " << numbers[i+1] << "\n";
    		}
    			
    			
    	
    	
    	
        return 0;
    }

    You need brackets after the for loop to group together both of those ifs.

    Just use strcmpi(), it's case insensitive...so 'Q' and 'q' would both work.
