    Unhappy urgent help needed!!!

    Hey everyone!
    I'm trying to pull this next code and for some reason, a reason i can't understand, the bold line marked in red is being ignored by the compiler. It just skips it and continue to the next line:
    Code:
    string word, trans, use;
    int index;
    
    cin >> choose;
    switch (choose)
    {
      case (1):
      {
        cout << "Please enter word: " << endl;;
        getline (cin, word, '\n'); 
        cout << "Please enter translation: " << endl;
        getline (cin, trans, '\n'); 
        cout << "Please enter a use of the word in a sentence: " << endl;
        getline (cin, use, '\n'); 
        cout << "Please choose commonness scale: " << endl;
        cin >> index;
        newData = new Data (word, trans, use, index);
        list.insert (*newData);
        break;
      }
    in the end of the function both "trans" and "use" are initialized while "word" is not.
    help anyone...

    You have a double ;; at the end of the first line!

    I more than agree but unfortunately that doesn't seem to solve the problem...

    The exact same problem was last dealt with here (see my last post).

    It should also be in a FAQ because it is a very common pitfall.
    I might be wrong.

    Thank you, anon. You sure know how to recognize different types of trees from quite a long way away.
    Quoted more than 1000 times (I hope).
