C++ New Lines


New Lines

To insert a new line, you can use the \n character:

Example

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main() {
  cout << "Hello World! \n";
  cout << "I am learning C++";
  return 0;
}
Run example »

Tip: Two \n characters after each other will create a blank line:

Example

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main() {
  cout << "Hello World! \n\n";
  cout << "I am learning C++";
  return 0;
}

Another way to insert a new line, is with the endl manipulator:

Example

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main() {
  cout << "Hello World!" << endl;
  cout << "I am learning C++";
  return 0;
}
Run example »

Both \n and endl are used to break lines. However, \n is used more often and is the preferred way.
