    my Code

    ok, i'm trying to learn C++ i don't have any background on Developing languges (if you count HTML and CSS are than i'm only decent at those) so this is my code:
    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    int main() 
    {
        int x
        int y
        
        cout<<"please write this number: ";
        cin>> x;
        cin.ignore();
        cout<<"please re-write the number: ";
        cin>> y;
        
        if (x == y) {
              cout<<"indeed, you have a good memory sir";
              }
              if ( x != y) {
                   cout<<"sir, you have a bad memory";
                   }
                   cin.get();
                   }
    ok don't flame me, this is my first program ever im making on my own! so i'm trying to make a program where you enter the same number twice, but it doesn't work.. i know there's some huge mistake.. so can someone help me out?

    You'll need semi-colons after you declare your integers.
    Code:
    int x;
    int y;
    Also, it's good that you're formatting your code with tabs and things, but you might want a system that's a little easier on the eyes in the future.

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    int main() 
    {
        int x;
        int y;
        
        cout<<"please write a number: ";
        cin>> x;
        cin.ignore();
        cout<<"please re-write the number: ";
        cin>> y;
        
        if (x == y) {
              cout<<"indeed, you have a good memory sir\n";
              }
              else {
                   cout<<"sir, you have a bad memory\n";
                   }
                   }

    you can either stick cin.get(); at the end (which you did in your first post, why did you change it?), or run it from the DOS prompt/konsole or whatever you're using.

    The closing of the console is a common question. In your case, if you add back the cin.get() you'll still need a cin.ignore() before it and after your last call to cin >>.

    thanks, fixed it!
    it needed a cin.get(); and a cin.ignore();
    Cool! it's Complete now!
