i was given an assignment to create a word construction game where the program will randomly picks a combination of vowels and consonants and the user will build as much words as possible from the choosen letters. my prog will check for the correctness of the words and gives the user points to each word built, with higher point given to words that use all the letters. i limited the number of letters to 4 or 5 letters only. i justtttt learned programming from the intro up to the string topic. so , i havee no idea how to create this game. can anyone help me with this ?

If you want to store some kind of string, use a string. So those arrays of char arrays shouldn't exist. Just use an array of string. Or even better, a vector of string.

printf? scanf? This is C++. Use cout and cin.

What's going on with your headers? Are you from the year 1995? This should be:

    #include <cstdio>
    #include <cstdlib>
    #include <ctime>
    #include <string>
    #include <cctype>

No namespaces? Wait, are you programming with a 25 year old compiler? Seriously, what are you doing this with? Are you using tools older than you are?

idk that's what my lecturer taught me and i have to finish this assignment using printf, scanf, puts and gets. not cout and cin. i'm currently using dev c++ 5.5.3

okay i guess i've asked this question in the wrong section . should ask this question in the c section not c++ hahaha i'm sorry my baddd
