    Loop Trouble ***New Error***

    ***Edit** New error:

    #include <iostream>
    #include <cstring>
    #include <windows.h>
    #include <stdlib.h>
    #include <time.h>
    #include <mmsystem.h>
    using namespace std;
    int ans1int=0;
    int ans2int=0;
    int ans3int=1;
    char ans1[4];
    char ans2[4];
    char f1[2];
    char f2[2];
    char m1[2];
    char m2[2];
    char f1f2[10];
    char m1m2[10];
    char f1m1[10];
    char f1m2[10];
    char f2m2[10];
    char f2m1[10];
    int main()
                cout<<"Fathers code - letter 1"<<endl;
                cin.getline(f1, 2);
                cout<<"Fathers code - letter 2"<<endl;
                cin.getline(f2, 2);
                strcat (f1f2, f1);
                strcat (f1f2, f2);
                cout<<"Your father is "<<f1f2<<" correct? [Yes/No]"<<endl;
                cin.getline(ans1, 4);
                if (strcmp(ans1, "Yes")==0 || strcmp(ans1, "yes")==0)
    When I say no instead of yes, it gives me HhhH (or whatever I input), example: I say Hh the first time, then say no. So I go through again saying hH, and it should say hH back to me, but instead it says HhhH.

    How do I clear a char?

    Sounds like a case of not clearing the keyboard's buffer (You have leftover input from the keyboard that's still wanting to be read).

    This FAQ article is mighty handy on the topic:
    Pentium 4 - 2.0GHz, 512MB RAM
    NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 440
    Visual Studio .Net 2003
    DX9 October 2004 Update (R.I.P. VC++ 6.0 Compatability)
