    Question Search Engine Looping

    I am writing a search engine. When you search something, the results come up, with another search box. Is there any way I can do that? Here is my code so far:

    #include <string>
    #include <iostream>
    #include <cctype>
    #include <algorithm>
    using namespace std;
    int main()
     string str1;
     cout << "HIDDEN";
     cin >> str1;
     cout << "\n";
     transform(str1.begin(),str1.end(), str1.begin(), tolower);
     // Results
      if(str1 == "hidden1")
      str1 = " ";
      cout << "hidden results";
      cout << "Search: ";
      cin  >> str1;
    else if(str1 == "hidden2") cout << "hidden results 2";
    else if(str1 == "hidden3") cout << "hidden results 3";
    else cout << "No files found";
    return 0;
    In this code, the search box in the results doesn't work correctly!

    Use WinAPI and create another window?

    Okay, I'm gonna close this, but what I was trying to do was create a search engine in C++ for DOS. I had everything right all along, but I had the transform function in the wrong place. I figured it out on my own. Thx, though!
