Come and Save Pickle City with ‘Salesman Pete’ and Larry the Steak

Awkward heroes, villains, sidekicks, cities and situations seem to be today’s trend in story telling. These are stories with heroes whose personalities are really off the scale or villains that make the run-of-the-mill mad scientist look like a sane scholar; where cities go beyond science-fiction or citizens make you face palm every time you try to make sense out of them. All this is quite great, but what happens if you put three people together who decide to mash all the awkwardness possible into a single (HUGE) comedy-filled superhero fest? Well, you get sorta like SALESMAN PETE by (former) French film students Anthony Vivien, Marc Bouyer, and Max Loubaresse.

Co-directed by the trio (former students of Supinfocom) Salesman Pete is the story of a clumsy and weak salesman who, thanks to advance science, can grow a cool mustache and become a super-strong and super-secret agent of justice ready to fight crime side by side with his steak companion “Larry.” Done in a sweet combination of 2D and 3D animation styles the short takes a lot from super spy and superhero movies resulting in an animated hero that is as badass and cool as a super-powered secret-agent salesman can be.

    Ola! Strangekidsclub,
    Thanks you for your post, int MaxSize = 25;
    int Add(string cityList[], int MaxSize);
    int ActualSize;

    cout << “Enter Values Below, Stop To Quit” << endl; //rules
    for(ActualSize = 0 ; ActualSize < MaxSize ; ActualSize++)
    {
    cout << endl;
    cout << “———————————–\n”;
    cout << endl;
    cout << “Enter city: “;
    cin >> cityList[ActualSize];
    if(cityList[ActualSize] == “Stop”)
    break;
    cout << “Enter mayor name: “;
    cin >> mayorList[ActualSize];
    cout << endl;
    cout << “———————————–\n”;
    a = ActualSize;
    }
    }

    when i enter a name with a space like “Hickle Pickle” the 2nd word replaces my first value in the next loop.
    How do i save the whole input string into array?

    example

    enter city: Los angeles (if i type this in, it gives me this)
    enter mayor name: enter city: (it won’t let me put value in for mayor)

    how would i fix this? thank you in advance
    Thanks
