Adding a Password To The Program :

char pass [ ] = { "your_password" },ch , enter[length_of_your_password] ;
int i = 0 ;
cout<<" Password : " ;
while( (( ch=getch() )!= '\n' ) && ( i < ( length_of_your_password - 1 ) ))
{
cout << "☻" ; // hiding your password with ☻
enter [ i ] = ch ;
i++ ;
}
enter[ i ] = '\0' ; // adding null character to end the entered password

if( strcmp( enter , pass )== 0 ) // comparing password entered with the actual one
{

your_program_here

}

else
{
cout<<" Invalid Password ! " ;
}


--------code ends-------

Maybe , for changing password , you will need to store it in a data file (file processing )
In that case you will need to compare the password entered with the 1 stored in the file..

thank you for the help though i figured it out how to put up a password.. though changing password, and delete is still my problem :sad:

by the way do you know how can i put a delete code for the items that i input on my program? it already makes files for the stored items though i don't get how the delete code works...
