Hiiii.. I have one more doubt...Instead of cin,and cout which are the alternative method to input output data?Cin waits till the user enters the answer... but is there anything which wont wait for the user?.... the user shouldnt be allowed to enter his answer after the allotted time.. so any other input methods?
