    Help with section of code.

    I need some help with my code.

    How can I allow the player to guess the word if they'd want to, instead of going through and guessing letters when they already know the word.


    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <cstdlib>
    #include <fstream>
    #include <string>
    #include <cmath>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    void type_of_word(char f);
    
    
    int main()
    {   
    		char c, ch, ch1, ch2;
    
    		char word[50];
    
    		char word1[25];
    
    		int l, i, next_guess, n, m, x;
    
    		do
    
    		{  
    			do
    
    			{
    
    			cout<<"\n\n\n\t******************************************  **************\n";
    
    			cout<<"\t********************* WoRd GuEsSeR *********************\n";
    
    			cout<<"\t************************************************  ********\n\n\n";
    
    			cout<<"\n \t(E) Enter your own word\n\n \t(C) Computer Chosen Word @ Random\n\n \t(Q) Quit\n\n\n Enter your choice: ";
    			
    			cin>> ch2;
    
    			}
    		
    		while	(ch2 != 'C' && ch2 != 'c' && ch2 != 'E' && ch2 != 'e' && ch2 != 'Q' && ch2 != 'q'&& ch2 != 'A' && ch2 != 'a');
    		
    		if	(ch2 == 'Q' || ch2=='q')  exit (0);
    
    		if	(ch2 == 'C' || ch2=='c')
    
    		{
    			ifstream fin("words.txt");
    			
    			if	(!fin) 
    			
    			{ 
    			
    			cout<<"\n\nYou are missing a file called words.txt\n\n"; 
    				
    			return 0;
    			
    			}
    			
    			for (i=0;!fin.eof();i++)   fin.getline(word,25);
    			
    			fin.close();
    
    			do 
    			
    			{
    			
    			x=rand();
    			
    			}
    			
    			while(x>i || x<0);
    
    			ifstream finn("words.txt");
    			
    			for (i=0;!finn.eof();i++)
    
    			{finn>>c; finn.getline(word,25); if (x==i) break;}
    
    			finn.close();
    		}
    
    		if	(ch2 == 'E' || ch2=='e')
    		
    		{
    			
    		cin.get();
    
    		cout<<"\tType the word :  ";
    
    		cin.getline (word, 25);
    		
    		}

    			if (word[i]!=' ')  word1[i]='-';
    		}
    
    		next_guess=l+2-n;     //Guess left, 2 more
    		
    		do
    		{
    		
    			there:  type_of_word(c);
    			
    			if (m!=0)  cout<<"\n\n\t\t\tChoosen letters : "<<choosen<<"\n";

    you have a terrible syntax young man.
    as for guesing : if user knows the word, it wouldn't be a problem for him to "type" it letter by letter.
    When i say "type" i mean gues all the letters.

    What do you mean I have terrible Syntax?

    I know that someone can type each letter one by one, but I would want the user to type in the word if he/she would want to guess. Can you elaborate on why my syntax is terrible, I would appreciate it.

    example of bad syntax
    Code:
    			if (choosen[i]==ch) 
    			
    			{
    			
    			cout<<"\a\t\t     !!You have choosen "<<ch<<" already!!\n"; goto there;
    			
    			}
    too many empty lines and no clear indentation
    try like this instead

    Code:
    	// some spaces between operators help readability
    	if (choosen[i] == ch) 
    	{ // no need for a blank line before this
    		// break up long lines
    		cout << "\a\t\t     !!You have choosen " 
    			<< ch << " already!!\n"; 
    		
    		// one statement on a line!!
    		goto there; // also think long and hard before using goto
    	}
