How to create array of dynamic sized string arrays in C++

Member 14652051 asked:

Open original thread
I need to read input from stdin and store the values into a array, such that each word in a line is stored as an array of strings.

Example:
Stdin:
Hello. My name is A.
I am from B.

Output:
{
{"Hello.","My","name","is","A."},
{"I","am","from","B."}
}

Appreciate any help.

What I have tried:

I have tried putting entire line into a single string, but I am not able to break it out.

int num_of_lines = 5;
string str_arr[num_of_lines];
for(int i=0;i<num_of_lines;i++){
getline(cin="">>ws,str_arr[i])
}

with this, I get the output as
{"Hello. My name is A.",
"I am from B."}
