    How to prevent cursor from going to newline in c++

    If you prompt a user to enter a value say;
    "Enter Salary: $"
    Then the user enters 500.00 and strikes the enter key.
    The cursor then goes to the next line.
    And this is what I want to prevent
    I don't want the cursor to go to a new line when the user hits enter. Or when it goes to a new line is there a way to get it back up to the previous line

    I think its impossible using standard library. You should use platform specific functions.

    For a little more portability, you can use *curses.
    I copied it from the last program in which I passed a parameter, which would have been pre-1989 I guess. - esbo
