# Currency Converter in C++

In this article, we will build a simple program for Currency Converter in C++. The user will be able to convert currencies like Dollar, Euro, Pound, and Rupee. This is a console application and very simple to understand as we only use a bunch of conditionals to write the entire program.

## Features

Users can convert currency from:

• USD to INR, INR to USD, GBP to INR, INR to GBP, INR to EUR, and vice versa
• USD to EUR, EUR to USD, USD to GBP, and vice versa
• EUR to GBP and vice versa

## Code for Currency Converter in C++

We will use Code::Blocks IDE to develop this program. Open the Code::Blocks IDE and create a new project with the name currencyconverter, now in the main.cpp file paste the following code and run it.

```#include <iostream>
#include <iomanip>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <string>
#include <conio.h>
#include <time.h>
#include <string.h>
using namespace std;

using namespace std;

double convert_dollar_to_Rupee(double dollar){
double rupee = dollar * 81.51;
return rupee;
}

double convert_Rupee_to_dollar(double rupee){
double dollar = rupee * 0.012;
return dollar;
}

double convert_pound_to_Rupee (double pound) {
double rupee = pound * 113.11;
return rupee;
}

double convert_Rupee_to_pound (double rupee) {
double pound = rupee * 0.0088;
return pound;
}

double convert_euro_to_Rupee (double euro) {
double rupee = euro * 94.92;
return rupee;
}

double convert_Rupee_to_euro (double rupee) {
double euro = rupee * 0.0105;
return euro;
}

double convert_dollar_to_pound (double dollar) {
double pound = dollar * 0.73;
return pound;
}

double convert_pound_to_dollar (double pound) {
double dollar = pound * 1.37;
return dollar;
}

double convert_dollar_to_euro ( double dollar) {
double euro = dollar * 0.86;
return euro;
}

double convert_euro_to_dollar ( double euro) {
double dollar = euro * 1.16;
return dollar;
}

double convert_euro_to_pound ( double euro) {
double pound = euro * 0.90;
return pound;
}

double convert_pound_to_euro ( double pound) {
double euro = pound * 1.11;
return euro;
}
