    Adding integers to a string

    How can I add an integer value to the end of a string? Is there a way to convert the integer to a string and then add it on?

    // using free Borland C++ Compiler v5.5
    // using default string.h library
    string Base = "Default";
    int Number = 5;
    Base = (Base + Number);
    Thanks for any help.

    Try using a stringstream.

    Talking I'll probably get flamed for using C...

    But in C you use sprintf()

    #include <iostream.h>
    #include <stdio.h>
    int main()
         char Base[20] = "Default";
         int Number = 5;
         sprintf(Base, "%s %d", Base, Number);
         cout << Base;
    return 0;

    Stringstreams is the answer:
    #include <string>
    #include <sstream>
    int Age = 89;
    std::string Name("Jack");
    std::stringstream SS;
    std::string S;
    SS << "Hi, my name is " << Name << " and I'm " << Age << " years old!";
    S = SS.str();
