okay my problem is when i try to compile it it says line 19 has an error
error - expected i before cout so should i try std::cout on all of them?
and i need the program to output the stuff you input just relaying the info back to the user
To answer your question about std::cout, yes you would need to use that since the only thing you qualified to use std:: namespace was string. You could add similar directives for cout and endl, or use std::cout and std::endl. To be fair, I'm not sure if you have to pass cin to getling using std:: or not though.
