    Angry Grade distribution program

    I have a program due friday and Im totally lost on it. im taking c++ in high school and no the bare minimum about it. anyways my teacher wants us to use text files along w/functions to show on a bar graph the different grades of 3 different classes. like for example the output should look something like this:


    5 6 7 8 9 10
    |----|----|--|----|-----|
    math A: ****
    B: *********
    C: *******
    englishA: ****
    B: ****************

    you know something similar to that nature. the actual directions on the paper say:

    output: print a histograph showing grade distribution in 3 different classes.

    syntax: Implementing functions and file streams

    assignment: you program should correctly print out a histograph representing grade distribution in 3 different classes. organize your program into blocks, add comments for easy reading.

    50% of the grade is if your program complies, uses at least one function, and is well commented.

    if you could give me any help i would GREATLY appreciate it!

    some stuff for you to ponder upon, but you'll need to try it, then we'll help you from there.

    i'm not sure how the text file is layed out if you are given one, or if you have to make one up.
    but,

    read in the grades into possibly arrays
    - how many are As, Bs, etc. // counter(s)
    use if statements to count the numbers
    print number of grades with stars or of your choice

    Give it an honest effort if you haven't already. Then post your code here and we can try to help you. Is there a specific aspect of the program that eludes you? Do you need help designing it?

    You need to include <fstream> to read and write to files.

    To make sure the basic program works, just display it on the screen, then once that works write it to a file.
    If you ever need a hug, just ask.
