C++: Infinite loop with a simple menu selection
The script I am working on is over a page long, so I am going to link it (one simple file): http://pastebin.com/7BVHmQGp
I apologize for that. My problem is I get into an infinite loop in my code, for example after I select 1 or 2 for encrypting/unencrypting it lets me enter the word, and when I next enter the "shift" for the cipher it runs an infinite loop of the menu.
I had tried for so many hours to debug this, I thought it was a problem with cin, for example when you enter an invalid choice it just throws an infinite loop/
What seems to cause the infininte loops?
I think you should be ignoring the newline character instead of a space
I tried with the following and it works on VS2010
cin.ignore(1, '\n'); getline(cin, input);
