User Input


As we have already discussed earlier cin is used to get user input. This is paired along with the extraction operator (>>)


The following example reads a value from the user and prints it on the screen.



#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main()
  int num;
  cout << "Type a number: "; // displayed on the screen
  cin >> num; //value taken from User
  cout << "Your number is: " << num; // number displayed on the screen

  return 0;
