I need to be able to seperate values from cin to 2 separate variables.  For Example:

1430 needs to be put into two variables:

variable1 = 14, variable 2 = 30

Additionally, input could be formatted as:

14:30
and then,
variable1 = 14, variable2 = 30

you will have to read the value in as an ASCII string and then convert the string to numbers, like

char Lin[80]
char NumStr[3];
int variable1 = 0;
int variable2 = 0;

cin.getline(Lin,80);
strncpy(NumStr,Lin,2);
NumStr[2] = 0;
variable1 = atoi(NumStr);

if (isdigit(Lin[2]))
  strncpy(NumStr,Lin+2,2);
else
  strncpy(NumStr,Lin+3,2);
variable2 = atoi(NumStr);

You may have to change this depending ont he exact rules you decide apon  for parsing the two numbers.
