This code when compiled in VC++ 6.0 shows a bug in VC++ 6.0, the bug here is that you have to press <enter> twice to enter something with the keyboard, the same code functions correctly with borland c++ builder 5.0. Any idea if this is solved by microsoft? I find searching their website a disaster!

#include <string>
#include <iostream>

using namespace std;

int main() {
     string s;
     getline(cin, s);
     cout << s << endl;
     return 0;
}

This is indeed a known bug - see http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q240/0/15.ASP ('BUG: getline Template Function Reads Extra Character'). There's also a fix provided with that article.
