    About string input in C++

    #include <cstdio>
    #include <cstdlib>
    int main( void )
         char Buffer[100];
         char* Name= new char[100];
         int number;
         printf( "Please Input A Number: " );
         scanf( "%s", Name );
         sprintf( Buffer, "%s", Name );
         printf( "Hi %s!!", Buffer );
         rewind( stdin );
         rewind( stdout );
         delete [] Name;
    The sprintf() there a C++ equivalent to it? That also handles std::string?

    look up stringstreams in your helpfiles/text book. Might ( should) be in the faq also.
    Free the weed!! Class B to class C is not good enough!!
    And the FAQ is here :-

    Why are you rewinding stdin and stdout?
