    Some clarification please.

    I was looking over my friend's code to see what i was doing wrong and he had a line that said this

    Code:
    get_room_amount(&rooms)
    
    for (cur_rooms=0; cur_room < rooms; cur_rooms++){

    now this is suppose to calculate the number of rooms in a house (to be painted afterwards). So I'm pretty sure im looking at a function.

    I just dont get what the bolded part means. I've used it before but never really understood it.

    What i think it means is

    cur_rooms is initialized to 0 (zero)

    cur_room < rooms (i dont know why it would be like that)

    cur_rooms++ (i dont even know what ++ does...does it add 1 or 2 to the 0?)

    I'm trying hard to pretty much teach myself, Since i cannot understand my professor.

    and I did ask my friend he doesn't know, I'm just hoping he didnt plagiarize.

    Appreciate the help.

    Well if he didn't know, how would he have gotten it into his program without plagiarizing?
