Validating c input

The only input that causes issue is a correct input and then an incorrect one.

For example, if we ask the user to enter a telephone number, we may want to ensure the data they enter has ten digits.

In most languages (especially scripting languages like Perl and PHP), this is done via regular expressions.

cin.clear() - This is used to clear the error state of the buffer so that further processing of input can take place.

Eavesdropping attacks are often easy to launch, but most people don't worry about them in their applications.

However, C does not have built-in regular expression support (it’s supposedly coming with the next revision of C ), so typically this is done by examining each character of the string to make sure it meets some criteria.
