A few C++ related questions

    I've been using C++ for about 1 - 2 hours, and I've got a small program built but I'd like it checking over to see if I'm coding right - before I start getting used to bad syntax or whatever
    PHP Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <string>
    using namespace std;

    int main()
    int age, feet, inches, pounds;
    string hair, eye, correct;

    cout << "Please type your answer to each question"
    << " followed by <enter>:" << endl;
    cout << "What is your age (years)? ";
    cin >> age;
    cout << "\nHow tall are you (ft in)? ";
    cin >> feet >> inches;
    cout << "\nHow much do you weigh (lbs)? ";
    cin >> pounds;
    cout << "\nWhat colour is your hair? ";
    cin >> hair;
    cout << "\nWhat colour are your eyes? ";
    cin >> eye;

    cout << endl << "\nYou are "<< age <<" years old, "
    << feet << " feet " << inches << " inches tall."
    << "\nYou weigh "<< pounds <<" pounds,"
    << " have "<< hair <<" coloured hair and "
    << eye << " coloured eyes." << endl;

    cout << "\nIs this correct? ";
    cin >> correct;
    if (
    correct == "yes"){
    cout << "\nThank you" << endl;
    cout << "\nWell it's what you put in..." << endl;

    Also, I noticed something called vector on one site. What is this?

    Also, at the end of the program, the window closes before I get a chance to see what the end result says (although I know myself what it is, others won't).

    Another thing, how can I make the answer yes case insensitive, so ppl can answer YeS and still get the Thank you message?
