Hello everyone, I am currently programming a text - based game in c++. It is a fantasy/medieval RPG. Now you are able to set a class type, the three classes are Guard, Archer, or Mage. Now I have a string variable for it, but i also want to make it so i can do while loops with it.
cout << "Hello what is your name?: ";
cin >> name;
// But then i want to make a loop with it like
while (name == Bob)
while (name == Joe)
Is this possible to do? I am just learning, so please help! Thank you !
Yes it is possible... and you're very close in the code you posted.
The thing is that this:
while(name == Bob)
Takes the variable name and compares it to the variable Bob. Since you do not have a variable named Bob this will error. And you don't want to compare it to a variable anyway.... you want to compare it to the actual string data of "Bob".
So to do that, you put it in quotes:
while(name == "Bob")
Now it will compare the variable name with the literal string "Bob".
