    this is my code, here is the link....

    http://www.cs.ucf.edu/~riqbal/assign6.html

    we are getting only errors, and very frustrated

    here are the errors:

    whats this....
    for (int x=0; x<5; x++)
    {
    thingy[x].num=0;
    }
    cant find a declaration for thingy[]

    parse errors are usually missing { or } or ( or ) or ;
    Free the weed!! Class B to class C is not good enough!!
    And the FAQ is here :- http://faq.cprogramming.com/cgi-bin/smartfaq.cgi

    Well, go through and look at the lines where the errors happen, or the lines just before.

    The first 2 errors are because you have this:

    for (int x=0; x<5; x++)

    but you already declared x (and cannot declare it here, in C) => drop the 'int'.
