    Searching an array

    Hi,

    I was wondering if anybody could help me. I found some code to search an array on this message board.

    Code:
    	for( x = 0; x < arraySize; x++ )
    	{
        	          if( Note_Array[x] == note_no )
                              break;
    	}
    It all seems to work fine except that I would like to know the location in "Note_Array" that the match was found. I imagined that the value of x would be the location in the array, however the value of x doesn't seem to change.

    What am I doing wrong?

    thanks,
    Paul.

    Remember that once the loop terminates, if x == arraySize then you didn't find the item.

    Also, what are Note_Array and note_no defined as?
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    Well, if it's still giving you trouble, post your latest code.

    Seems to be working fine now.

    The C compiler on the DSP suite I'm using seems to have a mind of its own at times.

    They all do. They're like little 2 year olds. Sometimes they do what you want...
