I'm not exactly sure how this works. It says something about the input device. I'm new to programming. Could anyone help clear this up?

e.g. int x; cout << "Please input an integer to x" << endl; cin >> x; cout << "Your input is " << x; // while cout is used to print information to the screen, cin is used to read information from the user and store them into variables.
