    Hi all. I am working on a program where a user first enters a string of 26 characters, they then choose the number of lines they'd like to use with a length of 40. I have it working as far as it encrypting a string that I enter into the code, but I don't know how to make it encrypt whatever input the user gives, nor do I know how make the program know how many lines they've chosen to use. I am a beginner/novice at C++, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance. This is the code I have so far:
    Code:
    #include <iostream >
    using namespace std;
    void encrypt(char[]); 
    
    
    int main( )
    {
    int userinput;    
    
    char string[ ] = "USeriNPut";
    
    
    cout << "The Decrypted String is: " << string << endl;
    encrypt(string);
    
    cout << "The Encrypted String is: " << string << endl;
    
    return 0;
    }
    
    void encrypt (char x[] ) 
    {
    for( int i=0; x[i] != '\0'; ++i ) ++x[i];
    }
