    Learning the basics

    Okay im a noob and need help im trying to make a super basic password system using 10 as the password. It works along with every other number i type in. here is the snippet:

    #include <iostream>
    using namespace std;
    int main()
        int a, b;
        a = 10;
        cin>> b;
        if (b = a)
        cout<<"good job";
    ps im not using this as a password system i just want to get a feel for variables
    can someone help me find the problem

    if (a == b)
    I might be wrong.

    Thank you, anon. You sure know how to recognize different types of trees from quite a long way away.

    b=a is assignment

    b==a compares them and returns true if they're equal
