    help where to start

    The question:

    Write a function count(number, array, length) that counts the number of times number appears in array. The array has length elements. The function should be recursive. Write a test program to go with the function.

    Ok my problem is I don't even know where to start at on this problem. I don't want someone to write the code for me I just need a push in the write direction.

    TIA

    Define the array, populate it with data, and get used to looping through it.

    Once you've done that you can start on your count function.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]
