    try adding a null character to the end of the string.

    try this
    Code:
    #include <iostream.h> 
    
    int main() 
    { 
    char name[25]={0}; 
    cout<<"Please type in your name\n"; 
    cin>>name; 
    cout<<"Your name is: "<<name<<flush; 
    
    return 0; 
    }
    if that doesn't work then try this...
    Code:
    #include <iostream.h> 
    
    int main() 
    { 
    char name[25]={0}; 
    cout<<"Please type in your name\n"; 
    cin.getline(name,sizeof(name)); 
    cout<<"Your name is: "<<name<<flush; 
    
    return 0; 
    }

    Or, do it the c++ way:

    #include <iostream>
    #include <string>
    using namespace std;

    int main(void)
    {
    string name;
    cout <<"Enter you name:"<<endl;
    cin >> name;
    cout <<"Your name is "<<name;
    return 0;
    }
