    VC++ 6.0 has a bug in this version of getline. Are you using VC++ 6.0?

    If not, can you post more of your code, preferably a complete and compilable example that demonstrates the problem.

    7. It is easier to write an incorrect program than understand a correct one.
    40. There are two ways to write error-free programs; only the third one works.*

    There's no need to look at the code. There is a bug in VC++ 6.0. You need to fix the bug so that you don't have to hit enter twice (or upgrade to a modern compiler/library like VC++ 8.0).

    http://www.dinkumware.com/vc_fixes.html

    Scroll down to the part that says "Fix to <string>", then make the change to the string file that it mentions there. If you have questions about how to find or edit that file then ask them here.
