    Question Embedded functions...

    I'm constructing a rather large calculator and I need some help with nested (embedded) functions. I've declared some functions before the int main() operator, and I am currently wishing to place embedded functions within those mother functions...

    I'm not being too clear, here's some code:

    Code:
    void one(void)
    {
         void add(void)
         {
         cout<<"blargh, blah blah..."<<endl<<endl;
         }
    }
    Assuming that the code's function one() is being called from a switch case within the int main() function, and the add() is being called from a switch case within the one(), which way should I go about this, having the void blargh(void) inside the mother function one()? Or, should I declare the nested function add() as an int or a float?

    i don't think that's possible, nested functions. i've never seen a need for them, in any case.

    didn't think so

    Yeah, I didn't think so. It'd be alot easier if it were like javascript

    Anyway, thanks. I'll have to revert to the if() statements

    Thumbs up

    I tried to keep it neat and a little more efficient than if() statements, but thanks anyway
