just predefine your password length and keep them storing in contiguous memory location in an array.
like suppose you have predefined password in char array pass[4]={'1','2','3','4'}.
then when you take input from user put it in other array let it be char user[length] and take the input in it.
then compare each element of both arrays i.e. use
Code:
for(i=0;i<pass_length;i++)
{if(pass[i]!=user[i])
flag=1;
break;
}
now after this loop check if flag is 0 if it is then password is correct.

i did a DO loop for 3 times, so th;e keypad only can key in 3 numbers. so do i have to come out with a StoreArray[3]={'1','2','3'};
Code:
if i name the input as keyPad

for(i=0;i<StoreArray_length;i++)
Code:
{if(StoreArray!=keyPad)
flag=1;
break;
Code:

is it like that ? sorry i'm a beginner in this. and btw the code u gave work for C++ right\?

first of all to maintaint clarity always post code in code tags(# sign given on top).
the code is right although i forgot to put } after break which i have corrected nowand it will work for both c and c++.
