You write code in C++. Right?
In C for example you could have
Then you would use string.h library for comparing , copying strings etc.
char word = "bla";
In C++ , string handling becomes way more easier by the string class i gave you above.
this will output Hello world.
using namespace std;
string first = "Hello";
string second = "world";
string str = first+ " " + second;
cout<< str << endl;
In C you would use functions from the library to achieve the same result.
If you play with C++, you should learn to handle the string class
