Code:
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
int main () {
string queens;
string password = queens;
string int = 1;
string guess;
cout << "Guess the password or enter 1 to exit! \n";
cin >> guess;
while (( guess != password )) && (( guess != (int)) {
cout << "Try again or enter 1 to exit. \n";
} if ((guess == password )) {
cout << "Congratz! That is the correct password! \n";
} else if ( guess == (int)) {
return 0;
}
return 0;
}
Errors:
CS111ShyanBhairoHW3.cpp: In function ‘int main()’:
CS111ShyanBhairoHW3.cpp:6:13: error: expected unqualified-id before ‘=’ token
string int = 1;

Shy,
your second error points to line 6 space 13 in main: string int =1;
both 'string' and 'int' are reserved words so the error is telling you that you don't have a variable name for string or int.

The next error points out that your parentheses don't match.

Most of the errors appear to be syntax related, so look it over good and the re post your fixed code using "[" 'code' "]" before it and "["'/code'"]" after it.

That should make it easier to figure out what you are doing.
