    <edited for spelling>


    Code:
     
     #include <iostream>
     #include <cstdlib>
     
     using namespace std;
     int main()
     { 
            int factor; // factor for geting password must be enterd to get the password's
     factor = 111111;
           int Keyboardinput; 
      int yes;       // int for seeing if you would like to get password or  not
         yes = 1;
      int no;
         no = 2;
      int password;
      
          cout<<"would you like to see a password or add a password";
           
              cout<<"                               see password 1: ";
      
        cout<<"                                                                 enter password 2: ";
        
               cin>> password;
               
       if ( yes == password ) 
       cout<<"enter a password: ";
     
           cin>> Keyboardinput;
     
       if ( factor == Keyboardinput )
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
         cout<<"password list 789678,hellomom"<<endl;
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
             else
             if ( no == password )
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    i can putt soemting in to a c++ program so that whine i get to the point whear
    I suggest you put programming aside and concentrate on more important things--like reading and writing.

    If nobody can understand what you write (or everybody understands, but not what you actually meant to say), then nobody can help you... aside from advising you to get your basic literacy up to scratch so that you can communicate more effectively.

    I'm really not following what you want to do. If you have a variable with a value, it already is saved so you can output it later -- just output the variable.

    And some people just don't quite understand that people that don't speak English as their native language aren't experts at English syntax and spelling. Ignore them...

    ok the point of this program was to hold passwords for all my onlines games i play so that people that use my pc can't get to them

    as of right now the only way i no of to add soemting like
    cout<<"password list 789678,hellomom";
    would be to type it in to the source file
    im looking for a way to add someting to it like this

    cout<<"password list 789678,hellomom";
    <<"password list 234566,hellomom";
    cometing like that but whitout me haveing to type it in and then complie

    so whear it says
    cout<<" please enter a password you would like to add: ";

    i would type in the 2 passwords and it would save it
    and add it to the source code so that it will be added next time i look them up

    You could read the passwords, encrypt them, and then write to file. To retrieve them, you read the ciphertext, decrypt and then print.

    If you are looking for a quick fix, you could consider just using say Password Safe.

    look into file i/o and filestreams (specifically fstream). That should get you started on what you need. But after that, if you dont want anybody else to get to it you will need to have the file you store all the passwords to encrypted by some algorithm.
    STL Util a small headers-only library with various utility functions. Mainly for fun but feedback is welcome.

    a frinde told me about this thange called a rot 13 cyper i was going to tri to work that into it in some way but if i can't the people that use my pc have no ideal how to use any of thes stuff so as long as the pass words are stored in a file that they can't get into or can't read it will work =)

    Repeat after me:

    a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z

    Now try to say this:

    c a t

    BTW, what you are trying to do (by what you said) and what your source code shows has nothing to do with each other.

    You say that you want to be able to add code to the source file but then you post some password program.

    Code:
    // factor for geting password must be enterd to get the password's
    For Christ's sake! What the hell does that mean?? It looks like you need to learn English and then TRY to learn to program.
