#include <iostream>
#include <string>

using namespace std;

void main( ){

string first, last, full;

cout << "Enter your first name: ";
cin >> first;

cout << "Enter your last name: ";
cin >> last;

full = first + " " + last;

cout << "Hello, " << full << endl;


how do i make this work I keep getting errors
Firstly, it would be nice to hear some of the errors.

But from what i can tell, you are using cin to capture a string from user input.

you can't use cin for this purpose. The only alternative that I know of in iostream is to use cin.getline

you will need to have an array of chars instead of a string and convert the array into a string later, however.

Note, I may be incorrect here. I forget most of iostream

What errors are you getting?
It compiles and runs correctly for me using VS2010.

PLEASE USE CODE TAGS (the <> formatting button) when posting code.
