    C++ Porgram help

    Hello everyone! I was wondering if anyone would be willing to help me with a program I am working on. I will admit I am not very good at programing and have very little confidence in my skills so far. What I am trying to do is get the program below to continue after a battle and offer the player to 1. rest, 2. Move, 3. fight or 9. quit again. Right now if the user selects move and then fight the game ends.

    Can anyone give me a suggestion on how to do this?

    Thank you in advance.

    Code:
    #include<iostream>
    #include<string>
    #include<vector>
    #include<algorithm>
    #include<ctime>
    #include<cstdlib>

    	inventory.push_back("dagger");
    
    	vector<string> player;          //player options
    	player.push_back(" ");          //empty place holder to move character names into the #1-4 spot to match enum values
    	player.push_back("Knight");
    	player.push_back("Archer");

    Re: C++ Porgram help

    The basic idea is to put a loop around the main switch with the condition test normally true but tests false when a user chooses to terminate. That way the program keeps looping until the user exits.

    Also, you have a couple of simple logic errors which I've highlighted with CAPITAL comments.

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <string>
    #include <vector>
    #include <algorithm>
    #include <ctime>
    #include <cstdlib>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    int main()
    {
    vector<string> inventory;       //inventory of weapons
    	inventory.push_back("sword");
    	inventory.push_back("bow");
    	inventory.push_back("wand");
    	inventory.push_back("dagger");
    
    vector<string> player;          //player options
    	player.push_back(" ");          //empty place holder to move character names into the #1-4 spot to match enum values
    	player.push_back("Knight");
    	player.push_back("Archer");
    	player.push_back("Sorcerer");
    	player.push_back("Elf");
    
    vector<string> foe;             //foe options
    	foe.push_back("Dragon");
    	foe.push_back("Troll");
    	foe.push_back("Worlock");
    	foe.push_back("Fairy");
    	
    enum Player{Knight=1, Archer, Sorcerer, Elf};   //enum to give the words integer assignments
    enum Action{Rest=1, Move, Fight, Run, Quit=9};
