ie..

repeat
      cout<<"is this bob?"<<endl;
      cin>>answer;
until
      answer='y'      


something like that....?

do {
     cout<<"is this bob?"<<endl;
     cin>>answer;
} while !(
     answer =='y'
     )

use ! (not) on the end condition
note == for comparison (otherwise you are assigning 'y' to answer)

Oops, last bracket should have ; after it

do {
          cout<<"is this bob?"<<endl;
          cin>>answer;
     } while !(
          answer =='y'
          ) ;

That is not exactly right.  The biggest problem is that it is formatted weirdly : - ).  the second problem is that "!" outside of the "()"  What you realy want is a != inside, like

do {
         cout<<"is this bob?"<<endl;
         cin>>answer;
} while (answer != 'y' ) ;
