If I am to declare a string of unknown size and the user is to input a string containing alphanumeric characters and spaces, what would be the most efficient way to declare and accept input?

barazor is correct. You might just want to look up MS'' getline bugfix if you use MSVC. The version of the Standard C++ Library that shipped with MSVC6 has a bug in the ''string'' template implementation file that causes it to read an extra character after encountering the terminating delimiter.

(Thanks Martee!)
