    hhhh.....elp!

    Hi everyone,

    I'm still working on the same project and my brain just doesn't work any more......

    I tried to use functions and it gave me more problems, so I went back and made it a straight main function program.... but I'm still getting those da*e error messages that I have no clue of....

    can any one shed some light??
    Thanks so much, I so so appreciate everyone's help....

    here are the error messages

    proj4.cc: In function `int main()':
    proj4.cc:276: parse error before `{'
    proj4.cc:287: confused by earlier errors, bailing out


    here is the program, sorry it is a bit long.....

    using "Tab" in output/print out

    Salem and Monster,

    Thank you both very much..... I looked over my codes more carefully and found those mistakes that you two have caught....
    I was finally able to compile my program and run it. The only last thing is that I would like to line up the output, does anyone know what syntax I can use to put a "tab" between each print out?


    Thanks so much!

    Code:
    cout << "\t";
    displays a tab.

    If you want to line up your output you can use setw() which is in the iomanip library.
