     Have you ever asked the user to enter a number and then a letter is entered that ruins the program? Well here is the solution and explanation to solve this problem. This tutorial will explain how to use a specific function that will allow you to enter 1) positive numbers only 2) negative/positive numbers only 3) regular text 4) characters passwords 5) number passwords The tutorial also contains explanations for converting arrays of chars to integers and integers to arrays of chars without using the atoi and those basic functions. Enjoy! Dario

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
