    heeeeelp!

    Code:
    sequential Update()
         //  I: input,   C: correct,   D: delete
    
    getNextTrans();
    getNextMaster();
    while (masterKey ≠ EOF and transKey ≠ EOF) do {
         if(masterKey < transKey) then {
              output master record to new master;
              getNextMaster();
         } else {    // if masterKey >= transKey
              if ( masterKey = transKey) then {
                   case {
                        code = 'I':
                             print "error: duplicate record key";
                             getNextTrans();
                        code = 'C':
    		 make change in master record;
    		 output master record to new master;
    		 getNextTrans();
    		 getNextMaster();
                        code = 'D':
    		 getNextMaster();
    		 getNextTrans();
    		 else:
                                  print 'error: invalid update code';
                                  getNextTrans();
                        }     // end case
                   } else {     // if masterKey > transKey
                             noMatch();
                   }
              }
         end     // sequentialUpdate()
    
    
    
    getNextTrans()
         if (trans is end of file)
              then transKey <- EOF
         else input transaction record;
    end     //getNextTrans()
    
    getNextMaster()
         if (master is end of file)
              then masterKey <- EOF
         else input master record;
    end    //getNextMaster()
         
    noMatch()
    	//if masterKey > transKey
         case {
              code = 'I':
                   build new record from trans record;
                   output new record to new master;
                   getNextTrans();
              code = 'C':
                   print 'error: no matching master record for trans key;
                   getNextTrans();
              code = 'D':
                   print 'error: invalid update code';
                   getNextTrans();
              else:
                   print 'error: invalid update code';
                   getNextTrans();
         }
    }     //end case
    end    //noMatch

    It is asking for some input and in a switch case calling different API's according to input

    First and foremost: How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

    Second, this code doesn't look like C++. In fact I can say with some certainty that it's not C++. Take your question to the appropriate language forum.
