    look in the tutorial section of this site for random numbers, look on the web for random numbers, SEARCH THIS BOARD FOR RANDOM NUMBERS!!!

    This question has been asked a million and one times.

    if that's not enough information, go to google and search for "problem solving tutorials"

    Get a random number. From there, use the random number in a switch statement, and call different functions in each case.

    Here is a snippet of the code

    int ln;
    srand(time(0));
    ln = rand()%100+200;
    goto ln;

    I think thats right.

    Just try it, you never know.
    tudehopet uses Borland Compiler 5.5
    and Visual C++ 6.

    > then go to the line with that number life

    please people, proofread your posts to make sure they make sense!

    do you mean execute some line of code? jump to a certain line in a file? we are not mind readers

    This might satisfy your needs.

    Code:
    #include <stdlib.h>
    #include <iostream.h>
    #include <time.h>
    
    int function(int*,int,int);
    
    int main()
    {
        int variable=0;
        srand( (unsigned)time( NULL ) );
        variable = function(&variable,100,200);
        cout << variable;
        return 0;
    }
    
    int function(int* variable, int lower, int upper)
    {
         return (*variable = upper - (rand()%(upper-lower)+1) );
    }

    variable = function(&variable,100,200);

    sorry 'bout that, should've been

    function(&variable,100,200);
