Please use code tags.
I'm not sure what you mean by repeat the program, but it looks like you are since your using a while loop.

Just add a while loop at the beginning of the code and close it at the end. This is a simple way to allow repetition of a program.

char again='y';
    while(again == 'y')
    {   //execute the program

cout<<"Would you like to run again?"<<endl;
        cin>>again;
        }//close while loop
