    Question Which is the best method for this problem??

    GUYS do u have any idea which method is best used in this kind of situation?And how should i write the code??

    PURCHASING MODULE
    B to purchase ticket for Business class
    E to purchase ticket for Economy class
    M to return to Main Menu

    Assigning Seats
    If the person types B, then your program should assign a seat in the business class (seats 1-5). If the person types E, then your program should assign a seat in the economy class (seats 6 - 25).

    What methods are you considering?
    C + C++ Compiler: MinGW port of GCC
    Version Control System: Bazaar

    Look up a C++ Reference and learn How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

    i don't know what you mean by "method". i'd separate the problem into parts and then write and test each part. when all of the parts work, i'd put them together with a driver. that's my method.

    If the person types B, then your program should assign a seat in the business class (seats 1-5). If the person types E, then your program should assign a seat in the economy class (seats 6 - 25).
    Ive started it off:
    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <string>
    
    
    using namespace std;
    
    int main(void)
    {
        
        system("TITLE Ticket Purchasing Module");
        
        string name;
        
       
        
        cout << "Please enter name to print on ticket then press " 
        ;cout << "B to purchase ticket in business" 
        ;cout << "class, E to purchase ticket in economy class "
        ;cout << "or M to return to menu \n" ;
        
        ;cout << "Please enter name: \n"
        ;cin >> name; 
        
        ;system("PAUSE");
        return 0;
    }

    Rockergal: Why do you put the ; at the beginning of the line.

    Compilers can produce warnings - make the compiler programmers happy: Use them!

    this is C++

    I wonder what happened in the last several days that we get a lot of incorrect forum postings?

    C on C++
    C++ on C
    Windows or linux specific on C forum etc...

    I do not really get it
    The first 90% of a project takes 90% of the time,
    the last 10% takes the other 90% of the time.

    In this case, I think it's rockergal that didn't pay attention, and submitted a solution for C++ in a C forum. The original posters previous posts are C.

    sorry people I thought there were minor differances in c and c++ I have a template for borland that I can modify it to but I wont be able to test it as I find borland really complex to install and I cant seem to find a decent C one that works
    *edit* Im learning to I have a write a program that a little bit more complicated than yours if anyone can suggest compilers that are as easy to install like dev C++ I can write yours and modify it to mine or vice versa =)
    I tried ......
    the only problem I get it how to tell the program what letter has been inputted and what it should display like in kahweis program

    Huh? Well, it's customary to place the semicolon at the end of the line. If you explain what's "funny" about Dev C++ and it's reaction to semicolons, maybe someone can tell you how to fix it.
