I was doing fine until i got introduced to classes and changing my chars to strings thats what made it confusing :P. But i am reading a book as i said, And Phantomotap you sure are smart right. Someone asks for a question and gets a answer that definitly means "Hey this guy cant help himself" you really are obnoxious. Besides all you have done is made pointless posts im only going to "glimpse and guess". And if you havent noticed i posted that i had already figured my last question out, And really if your going to internet police, Saying i shouldnt post topics on a c++ forum asking for some pointers then your pretty ignorant. Saying i dont help myself once again is quite a assumption, But i assume you dont have very good people skills.Take it easy now. Phantomotap is merely pointing out that you seem to lack some very basic understanding of how the language works, and suggests that you read books and/or tutorials until you get a better understanding before taking on projects doing something and start asking questions about why something doesn't work when it's a syntax error.
