    passing cin

    Will someone give me an example of how to pass cin as a parameter in a function.

    I am learning about classes and my instructor gave an example that included.

    Money a, b, c;

    a.Input(cin);

    I don't know how to set up the prototype to use this.

    Thanks for your help.

    Unless I'm seriously mistaken std::cin is an std::istream, so:
    Code:
    void Input(std::istream& Stream)
    {
      Stream >> Something;
    }
    
    Input(std::cin);
