While I realize you said you were doing this for educational purposes, it is also worth noting that you should also learn to reuse code that has already been written and well tested. Your code could simplify to the following:

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main()
{
	// declare string storage
	string theStr = "";

	// get string input of unknown length
	char ch = '\0';
	while (ch != '\n')
	{
		ch = cin.get();
		theStr += ch;
	}

	// print length information
	cout << "You entered a string with length:  "
	     << theStr.length() << endl;
	return 0;
}


Don't get into the habit of reinventing the wheel. There are a lot of buggy programs out there because of developers doing just that without realizing they could have written much less code to accomplish the very same thing.

If you decide to become a software engineer, you are signing up to have a 1/2" piece of silicon tell you exactly how stupid you really are for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week
