    Hi all,

    I am new to the forum and to learning C++. I tried a simple program to input one's name and display them (using cin). Here is the code...

    #include "stdafx.h"

    int main()
    char x;
    using namespace std;
    cout << "To explain the cin function";
    cout << "Enter your name:";
    cin >> x;
    cout << "You entered" << x << endl;


    But I get a truncated output. For instance, if I enter a name like "Rajesh" I get the output as "You entered: R"...rest of the name is gone. I usd Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 express edition...Could any of you explain this to me?? Thank you in advance.

    The code is working correctly. "char x;" defines x as a single character. Did you mean "string x;"?
