I am trying to learn C++,and I haven't bought any books or anything yet so I have a few questions.
I think I've understood that with int var = value -- you set a variabel value, but how do i set it to something a user is prompted for?
so that i ask the user what the value should be.

Countless ways to do this ... handiest (and VERY common way of doing it (coming from C history, and by now a programing idiom) probably being the following which also works fine in c++:

#include <stdio.h>
int x;
printf("Enter a number: ");
scanf("%d", &x);

or if u want a more standard c++ parlance:

int x;
cout << "Enter a number: ";
cin >> x;
cout << "You entered " << x << endl; // the endl means skip a line
