    Code:
    // function prototype
    void analyze_hand(int[],int[]);
    
    // function call
    analyze_hand(num_in_rank,num_in_suit,&straight, &flush, &four, &three, &pairs);
    
    // function definition
    void analyze_hand(int num_in_rank[], int num_in_suit[],*straight, *flush, *four, *three,*pairs)
    The prototype doesn't match the implementation. If there are other issues, please explain them clearly so we know where to look.

    In C++ (not in C) you have an option to not set some arguments at the time function call provided that you declared default parameters.

    7.7 — Default parameters Learn C++

    In your case, you have more parameters than you declared. So, your function decleration and call does not match. You must have compiler errors for the case

    Please don't delete your code from the original post. Otherwise, other people won't be able to learn from the problems you faced.

    I am here offering my time and abilities for no compensation, other than to help other people [such as yourself] improve their skills. By selfishly deleting your question, you've ensured that I was only able to help you with this question, not anyone else. That is rude, and makes people wary about offering you help in the future.
