    Yes I just realised that must have been the problem.

    Since I'm using the cin to pause the program -that is causing the problems. In most cases this wouldn't matter but in this particular case it does.

    However, when I use getch(); to pause the program it works.
    Although, secondly I noticed if I enter:

    Code:
    123abc23
    
    the output is>> 
    
    the integer you entered was: 123
    shouldn't this return an error?

    Why should it? Just because you find that behavior vexing in this one case doesn't mean it's an error. In fact, if it were flagged as an error, we all would have so much trouble working with streams that they wouldn't be practical.
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    Sorry you misunderstood me. I don't mean it's wrong, I just mean the input is invalid. A small point nothing big. But now I understand why my particular program wasn't compiling and running as expected.

    Thanks for explaining hk_mp5kpdw
