    Wrap the whole of your program in a loop:
    Code:
    int main()
    {
      bool done = false;
    
      while ( !done ) {
        // Program logic
      }
    }
    >i dont know why but everbody tells me that
    The main function can't be called recursively in C++. It's a rule set by the language standard, though several compilers will allow it for backward compatibility with C and non-standard C++.
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    yes - you can

    or you can build another function move there the "Program logic" part and get the simple main function like the suggested above
    All problems in computer science can be solved by another level of indirection,
    except for the problem of too many layers of indirection.

    You could use some tutorials. You are missing some basics of C++.

    Try some on this site. (www.cprogramming.com)
