    Unhappy functions....please help

    I am trying to write a program that:
    write a function called convert that accepts 4 arguments as follows:
    1) integer seconds
    2) reference int hours
    3) reference int minutes
    4) reference int remain_sec

    Convert within your function the value of the integer "seconds" into hours, minutes, and remaining seconds. Assign these values to your reference variables within the "convert" function. Return to the main() function and print the corresponding arguments as referenced by the convert() function. Do not use global variables.......

    ... This is what I have so far....

    #include<iostream.h>

    void(convert(int, int&, int&, int&, int&, &int&);

    int main()
    {
    int seconds, hours, minutes, remain_sec;
    cout<<"Please enter seconds:";
    cin>>seconds;

    int seconds;
    cout<<"Enter seconds";
    cin>> seconds;

    hours()
    hours = seconds/360;

    minutes()
    minutes = hours/60;

    remain_sec()
    remain_sec = minutes/60;

    }


    Any suggestions or help would be appreciated...

    heh i just compiled it, and figured out thats its not write: instead of puttin (*) put a (/) and change the hour and minutes to float numbers (use float instead of int)
    Code:
    #if _emo
      #define stereo_type_i_dislike
    #endif

    declare void convert( int, int *, int *, int * );

    declare main ()

    declare integer variables seconds, hours, minutes, secsRemain;

    Prompt for user input;
    Get user input;

    Pass input to convert( seconds, &hours, &minutes, &secsRemain );

    Print format hours:minutes:secsRemain;

    end main


    void convert( int sec, int *hr, int *min, int *secRem )

    declare integer temp;

    hr = sec / numSecsInHour;
    temp = sec mod numSecsInHour;
    min = temp / numSecsInMin;
    secRem = temp mod numSecsInMin;

    end convert

    hth,

    Code:
    template <typename styp, typename typ>
    void convert (styp seconds, typ &h, typ &m)
    {
          m = seconds / 60;
          h = m / 60;
    }
