Hello! :)

I'm having a problem while comparing one character from a string with a ... string.

This is a part of a pretty complex loop (or, it's complex for me, since I'm new to C++ and programming), but the case is that I need to compare the value of a given i index of a string to a string. For example:

#include <iostream>
#include <string>

using namespace std;

int main()
	string str = "Arne Kristoffer rules";
	for(int x = 0; x != str.length(); x++)
		if (str[x] == "a")
			cout << str[x];
	return 0;

Well, this is just a silly example program, but I hope you see whats wrong (because I don't...)

Thanks! :)

Very simple mistake: if (str[x] == "a") should be: if (str[x] == 'a') You are comparing each character from a string with another character, so you need single quotes instead of double

Actually, you are one of the few people who get the Code-tags right in their first post, so : bravo!
