Hi yay hello,

Just for clarification:
Your program should take a sentence from the user and then display it but split it up so that always 10 characters are printed in one line? Or did I misunderstand your question?

really unclear, what you want!!!
Alan N 3-Apr-11 10:31am    
This is question is impossible to answer as no one will be able to tell what your requirements are. From the example I would guess that you want to randomly insert or delete spaces and output between 7 and 12 characters per line!
Alan N 3-Apr-11 10:50am    
Sorry that is not clearer. Your input was "hello How are you I am so happy" and in the output sometimes you keep the spaces between words and sometimes you remove them. Look at your second line "hello iamha". You have also converted to lower case which you never mentioned before.

If you are able to state your requirements PRECISELY then designing the programme will be easy.

OK that's better but still not good enough.

You want 10 non-space characters per line.

How do you decide what the actual length of the line will be?

In the example you have 12 characters per line including the spaces.

In the second line how did you choose which spaces to remove?

In the third line how did you decide where to add spaces?

The biggest problem for any develeoper (this don't depend on the language you use) is to articulate what the program should do. If you can do that the program is as good as ready. Do you want help - please tell somebody what you're willing to do.

Good point! My 5.
Using cin is probably not your best option for this, since it breaks on a space character, see this article (tells you problems with cin and shows you how to use getline instead):[^]
