C++ - Check if a value is a number

Ask a question


Issue


I need a routine to check if a particular is a number in order to prevent a C++ program to crash. Can you please give me an example of how it should be like?

Solution


What you can do is test the value returned by cin.


int nbJoueur=0;
cout << "nombre:";
while( !(cin >> nbJoueur) ) {
string tmp;
cin.clear();
cin >> tmp;
cout << "incorrect" << endl;
}

Thanks to fiddy for this tip.
