The >> operator can only read one word into a string.
To read a line of text, use the function getline().
This statement reads characters from cin and stores them in the string variable text until a new line character occurs.
You can specify a different delimiting character by passing the character to the getline() function as a third argument.
getline(cin, s, '.');
The delimiting character is read, but not stored in the string.
Any characters subsequent to the first period will remain in the input buffer of the stream.
