    Quick Array comparison question.

    Hi guys, I have a quick question on comparison in one array rather than two, I am not sure if it's possible but it sounds doable and I searched around and couldn't find anything.
    Basically I'm just storing values in each elements in one array sum[SIZE], and I want to compare the first element to the next, if it's the same value then return 1 else return 0, I have a feeling a for loop is involved but I just can't seem to grasp onto the concept of how to compare elements in one array.
    Hope someone can clarify the logic for me and much appreciated for any help ^.^

    To compare the first element to the next you could do something link
    Code:
    int yourArray[SIZE];
    if(yourArray[0] == yourArray[1])
       // do something.

    To take this one step further:

    Code:
    int same( int a, int b )
    {
        return a == b;
    }
    ...
    if( same( array[0], array[1] ) )
        ...

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.
