    Question newbie-functions??

    Hi,
    i am stuck on how to take the return value from one funcn and use it in other 2 funcns.
    in this case, i am getting return value from calctottime ,and wants to use it in calcmins and calcsecs.

    thanks.....


    Code:
    int main()
    {
    ....
    cout<<"the total time is"<<calctottime( t1,t2,t3);
    calcmins(totT);
     calcsecs(totTa);
    return 0;
    }
    
    int calctottime(int time,int time1 ,int time2)
    {
    ........
    totalTime=time+time1+time2;
    		
    return totalTime;
    
    }
    
    void calcmins(int totTime)
    {
    cout<<"the mins r"<<totTime/60<<endl;
    }
    
    void calcsecs(int totTimes)
    {
    
     cout<<"the seconds r"<<totTimes%60<<endl;
    }

    }
    You must either assign the function calls to a variable or compare them to other values.


    Example:

    unsigned int fMins = calcmins(totT);
    unsigned int fSecs = fSecscalcsecs(totTa);

    or

    if (calcmins(totT) == fSecsCalcsecs(totTa))
    {
    doSomething();
    }

    The best way and the recommended way of achieving this is to put your returned values into variables.

    //if calctotime() returns an int, just place the value in an int variable that is global or static, Class encalpulation is the best, and that way you can pass the value to other functions.

    int c_to_time = calctotime(t1,t2,t3);

    and so on for your other functions that return values.

    um why not store the returned answer from calctotime into a variable and reuse it?

    such as:

    int foo = calctottime( t1,t2,t3);

    then calling the function with the variable:

    calcmins(foo);
    calcsecs(foo);

    Hope that helps..
