    Hello can anyone convert this to <conio.h>/printf and scanf style

    Can someone convert this to printf and scanf type? Im having trouble doing it.

    #include <iostream>
    #include <string>
    int main()
        //keep track of while loop
        bool correct = true;
        //Password user must enter to unlock
        int password = 123;
        //password user is entering
        int enteredPassword;
        //number of times user can enter password
        int numTries = 0;
        //continue asking until correct or 3 limit reached. 
        while(correct == true)
            std::cout << "Password Checker" << std::endl;
            std::cout << "Please enter your password." << std::endl;
            std::cin >> enteredPassword;
            if(enteredPassword == password)
                std::cout << "Correct password!" << std::endl;
                correct = false;
                std::cout << "Wrong password!" << std::endl;
                std::cout << "Attempted ";
                std::cout << numTries;
                std::cout << " out of 3." << std::endl;
                if(numTries == 3)
                    std::cout << "Too many password attempted!" << std::endl;
                    correct = false;
    return 0;

    Why don't you read the rest of the thread where you lifted the code from?
    How to give three attempt's to entered password
    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.
