I am glad to find this site. I have been searching for help with learning C++, to no avil. So my question, which is multi-fold: I have a book from 10 years back or so, ansi compliant, should it work with dev-cpp. Second, I learned the difference between char and values, but when I look at the code the book shows, it looks like they are entering only values (like 1). And when I try to code a simple program like choose number one or two, then output one of two texts. It pops up as a cmd prompt in xp sp2, and displays the opening message, but when I try to input something, then press enter, it exits(which isn't overly suprising) . But how do you input text (numbers in this case). And the reason the thing isn't working, in my opinion, is because the code is somewhat out dated. The book that I am using is Learn C++ in 21 days 2ed. .
