    Array in if condition.

    Hi,

    Sorry if this seems insignificant but I am not very good. I can't get this code to work:

    Code:
    for(i=0; i<=10; ++i){
                            if (hand[i]==card){
                            x=1;
                            }
                            else{
                            x=0;
                            }
     }
    I have got the program to print the values of the variables, and everything is as I would expect. The program runs through the loop and the if statement, but refuses to recognize when hand[i]==higher_card, even though it can print them out, and they are clearly the same. All of the variables are integers. Can anyone help?

    There is nothing inherrently wrong with the code posted.
    You'll need to show more.

    That's the only code in this function. The function is passed hand and card, but since it can print these out correctly I figured there was nothing wrong with how I passed them. The elements of hand are read in from a file (they are definitely integers though). Do you think there might be some sort of space or end of line character or something that's the problem?

    How is card defined? How is hand defined? Please show a complete program that illustrates your problem.

    The whole program is to big to show, I'll try and find what's relevant and post it as soon as I can. Thanks for your help with this.

    Aha, I've just found where I've gone wrong. The whole thing was immersed in if statements and loops, and I wasn't following it properly. Thank you for helping I feel a bit embarrassed now....
