creating menu with c++

I am a newbie c++ programmer. I created a simple numbered menu, i get the users choice and based on that choice it calls the appropriate function. Once that function completes the program ends. I want it to reload the menu after the function finishes. How would i do this? The menu is in main(). I tried using a do loop to reload the menu when the function returns control to main but when the user enters the q to quit the programme goes into an infinite loop. Please help.

int main( )
int choice = drawMenu( );
case 1:
//do something.
goto LABEL;
case 2:
//do something...
goto LABEL;
case 3: //suppose this is exit
return 0;

I think this should do it

it's late and i may have misread your post, but you could do something like this.

int main()
     char choice;
     //put your choices here
     cout << "CHOICE GOES HERE" << endl;
     cin >> choice;

     //now you can just do a while until the user puts in a 'q'

     while (choice != "q")
           if (choice == "a")
                 //whatever you want to do
           //do that same thing for all
           //now just do another prompt for choices
           cout << "CHOICES" << endl;
           cin >> choices;
  return 0;
hope that helps!
