    No I didn't remember that part. I will try that. I am sure it is obvious that I am new to this. Thanks for pointing it out

    I doubt that will support the readability of the script :\

    I put that in but I am still getting errors. If I use it as #include <iostream.h> it works ok. I have no Idea what I am doing wrong. I still can't get it to actually give out random numbers, it keeps giving me the same numbers all the time.

    you probably just have an old compiler... just keep the <iostream.h> then...

    I was merely trying to learn thatdude about how to block code, not how to write the most readable code, but thanks for your comment either way.

    Am I doing something wrong with the random function? It keeps generating the same bumbers all the time.

    Did you seed the random number generator? srand(time(NULL));

    yes, you missed out your "randomize()" function in your program.

    Yeah i figured that out, it was merely to stop the other guy from making "errors" like that.
