Problem with cin.getline();

Posts: n/a
This is part of a database-kind-of program.

char name[50];
int age;

for(int x = 0; x < 2; x++)
cout << "Enter your name : ";
cin.getline(name, 50);
cout << "Enter your age : ";
cin >> age;

It runs fine the first time round the loop, but during its second run, it'll
skip the cin.getline part and go straight to "Enter your age : ";

So the output for the second run becomes
"Enter your name : Enter your age : "

It works fine if I use cin >> instead of cin.getline().... Anyone has any

Any responses are greatly appreciated!

Yikes really sorry here... Found out that you have to add a cin.ignore() to
clear the buffer
