1. ## HELP!!!!!! Homework Validating ISBN w\ dashes due next week

I need to write a program that validates ISBN numbers in the that are 10 digits long with the 10 th digit being the check sum digit example
ISBN: 0-13-240416-8
0+2*1+3*3+4*2+5*4+6*0+7*4+8*1+9*6=129
When 129 is divide by 11 the remainder is 8
check digit is 8.

I have to write a program that will determine the string of characters entered only contain dash("-") and numeric characters ( in a 10 digit ISBN the dashes may be in different locations depending on the book publisher.). If characters are valid it must the calc. the check digit to determine if the ISBN is valid.

I need to include user-written functions to.
* validate input
*calculate the check digit validity
stlib. funct. for checking numeric values may also be useful.

I have a basic idea of how to write a program in C++
Code:
```#include <iostream>
002
#include <process.h>
003
#include <iomanip>
004
#include <conio.h>
005
#include <string>
006
#include <stdio.h>
007
#include <ctype.h>
008
#include <windows.h>

void gotoxy(int x, int y)
012
{
013
COORD coord;
014
coord.X = x;
015
coord.Y = y;
016
SetConsoleCursorPosition(GetStdHandle(STD_OUTPUT_HANDLE), coord);
017
}
018

019
void clrscr(int x, int y)
020
{
021
COORD                      coordScreen = { x, y };
022
DWORD                      cCharsWritten;
023
CONSOLE_SCREEN_BUFFER_INFO  csbi;
024
DWORD                      dwConSize;
025
HANDLE                    hConsole = GetStdHandle(STD_OUTPUT_HANDLE);
026
GetConsoleScreenBufferInfo(hConsole, &csbi);
027
dwConSize = csbi.dwSize.X * csbi.dwSize.Y;
028
FillConsoleOutputCharacter(hConsole, TEXT(' '),
029
dwConSize, coordScreen, &cCharsWritten);
030
GetConsoleScreenBufferInfo(hConsole, &csbi);
031

2. This is C++, not C. Someone will be along to move this thread shortly.

3. Someone needs to get off their ass and down to some work.
