    Question Rearranging Names

    I have written this program first to only include first and last name..how could I know include the middle name?

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <string>
    using namespace std;
    
    int main()
    {
        //initializing variables
      string str;
      int i, index;
    
        //prompting user to input name
      cout << "Enter a first middle and last name: "  << endl;
      
        //telling computer to read input
      getline(cin, str); 
    
        //setting index to look at each character until space is found
      index = str.find(' ');
      
        //setting index for read the number of characters in last name once space
                                                                        //was found
      i = index + 1;
      while(str[i])
      {
        //output last name
    	  cout << str[i];
    	  i++;
      }
        //setting a comma between last and first name
      cout << ", ";
    
        //setting index for reading the number of characters in first name
      for(i = 0; i < index; i++)
    	  
          //output first name
          cout << str[i];
    
     
      return 0;
    }

    Look for another space?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Yeah I figured that out -put in order to change the output-what needs to be done to make the middle now be the last item listed?

    Only be concerned with today, yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift and that is why they call it the present.
