    Where is the 411.........

    Hi fellow Programmers.

    Hello it is Semma I have a question. How do I represents length

    of time in minutes and outputs two numbers that represent the

    same length of time in hours and minutes in a message using the

    user's name. Here is an example of the program working:


    What is your name? Nancy

    What time in minutes would you like converted ? 750

    Nancy, 12 hours and 30 mintes correspond to 750 minutes.


    #include<iostream.h>
    #include "c:\\ftsoft\\include\\tstring.h"
    void main()

    {

    // String input
    String (G)name;
    String (L)name;
    String (M)Program;
    String (S)Identification;

    cout <<"What is your name"<<endl;
    cin >> (G)name;
    cout <<"What is your last name<<endl";
    cin >>(L)name;
    cout <<"Program of study"<<endl;
    cin >>Program;
    cout <<"Student Identification"<<endl;
    cin >> (S)Identification;
    cout "Would you like to convert time to minutes...."<<endl;
    cin >>(M)Conversion;

    // Time Conversion Calculations
    double (M)Conversion;
    Conversion Hours = t / 60;
    Conversion Mins = t % 60;

    Thank you.......(is this correct).

    You might want to read up on allowable variable names.....

    variable names MUST start with either a letter or an underscore character _ .After that any combination of letters and numbers.Parentheses are not allowed in variable names.
    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

    hmm obviously this is not the complete code.. but the last time i checked in c++ you need to declare your variables before you actually use them...

    cout "Would you like to convert time to minutes...."<<endl;
    cin >>MathematicalConversion;

    // Time Conversion Calculations
    double MathematicalConversion;

    and i dont think you have good variable names:

    Conversion Hours = t / 60;
    Conversion Mins = t % 60;

    unless of course Conversion is of typedef. Now if that program works then wow...

    What's all this stuff for? It's not used in anything you've posted.
    cout "Would you like to convert time to minutes...."<<endl;
    cin >>MathematicalConversion;
    What's this? You don't declare MathematicalConversion till later. All you really want here is a yes or no anyway. It's kind of a long variable name. What you may have meant is to enter yes or no, check for yes in an if statement, and call a function MathematicalConversion if the answer was yes. Or just do the math in the if block & cout the answer.

    // Time Conversion Calculations
    double MathematicalConversion;
    Conversion Hours = t / 60;
    Conversion Mins = t % 60;
    Conversion is not a type. int is.
