Problem with if

Recommended Posts

Okay,I am having a problem ending this if statement.My complier puts whatever is after my if statement in the statement.Heres the code: if (ank == 7) std::cout<<"_X_|___|___\n"; std::cout<<"___|___|___\n"; std::cout<<"___|___|___\n"; std::cout<<" | |\n"; so how do i end it?

Enclose everything inside the if statement in braces {}. So ...
if (ank == 7)
{
std::cout << "blah\n";
...
...
}
std::cout << "We are no longer in the if statement\n";

I though flush only cleared the input buffer? Or is it just one general buffer. I always use endl tho...

Remember that cout, cin, fstream, ofstream, ... are all subclasses of iostream/iobase (or something like that anyway). so most funcs can be used accross the board and will achive similar results.

this is foolproof and if it doesn't work check your compiler settings (i'll be assuming that you're in std namespace 'using namespace std;' for simplicity):

if (ank == 7) {
cout << "_X_|___|___\n";
cout << "___|___|___\n";
cout << "___|___|___\n";
cout << " | |\n";
}
or you could take a small shortcut:

if (ank == 7) {
cout << "_X_|___|___\n"
<< "___|___|___\n"
<< "___|___|___\n"
<< " | |"
<< endl;
}
