this is the code i'm using
char date; // char array of 16 spaces
cout << "Please enter the date." << endl << "in "month DD, YYYY" format." << endl << endl; // directions cin.get(date, 16); // ?? cout << date; // used to see if it worked cin.ignore(80, ' ');
It doesn't allow me to even input anything it just skips and goes on the next block of code. i want to get input with spaces too.
