    Question Newbie Question-While/If?

    Hi. I'm brand new and have a question on a program to convert temperature scales. The user is prompted to enter temperatures and the scale (F or C). The program converts, displays, and prompts the user if another conversion is needed. How are these decisions made in the program? With while or if statements? do these work with letters like F, C, Y, and N. Program also needs to recognize upper or lower case letters in the input by the user. Thanks, Dime

    you can write a do while statement

    do
    {
    your conversion code
    cout << "Would you like to try again? (Y or N)"<< endl;
    cin >> UserContinue;
    }
    while (toupper (UserContinue) == 'Y');


    the toupper makes the y or n capital when entered by the user
    the do/ while will loop the program till the user enters n
