Hi everyone I need tome tips because I'd to learn how to create a validation process, I want the program to only take int variables, and if the user write something else, there is a pront that tell to try again but whenever I try to to it it's just go automatically to infinite loop, let me get you an example

int grades;

cout << "Write the grades" << endl;  

// if the user write a letter or something else I want to promt that need it to write something again, i wish I can do it with funtion isalpha() but I try it and I guess I just don't know how to use it.

// the way a try it

cin >> grades;

while(grades != 0)


cout << "Try again" << endl;

cin >> grades;


Something else I'd like to know if you don't mind if that I'm trying to repeat a code as well but when I try to do it, it's skipping the first part and I don't know why, still running though but just that, this is an example

#include <iostream>

#include <string>

using namespace std;

int main()


char repeat;

do {

int age;

string fullname;

cout << "enter your full name" << endl;

getline(cin, fullname);

cout << "enter your age" << endl;

cin >> age;

cout << "\n \n \n";

cout << fullname << endl;

cout << age;

cout << "\n \n";

cout << "press (y) to repeat" << endl;

cin >> repeat;

}while(repeat == 'y');

 return 0;


/* i know is a little messy but it is just an example, I've been working with it for a few hours but I can't figure it out I guess    THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!!*/

using namespace std;

int main(){

    string b="";
    char num[100];
        cout<<"ingrese su numero: "; cin.getline(num,90,'\n');
        for(i=0; i<longitud; i++){
            if(num[i]=='0'|| num[i]=='1'|| num[i]=='2'|| num[i]=='3'|| num[i]=='4'|| num[i]=='5'|| num[i]=='6'|| num[i]=='7'|| num[i]=='8'|| num[i]=='9'){
                cout<<"ingrese solo numeros\n\n";
                goto cifras;
    cout<<"Tu numero "<<int_n<<"+4="<<int_n+4;

    return 0;

https://pastebin.com/KETuVBqi I hope this code will help you understand. I think I predicted every outcome, but if not feel free to fix it and let me know. If you have questions, you can ask me.

1.) to answer your first question about the infinite loop. This is occurring because did not initialize the variable grades on line 1. It is good common practice to initialize new variables you make so the system knows about the variable. So if you change your first line of code to something like:

int grades = 0;

it should solve the issue.

2.) As for the 2nd part, I think if you initialize your char repeat to some value it might solve your problem.

char repeat = '  ';
