    if you want the numbers 1-10 in the array and you don't want to do it this way

    int array[10] = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10};

    you can do it this way

    for (i=0, i<10, i++)
    {
    list[j] = i;
    };

    but the latter will put the numbers 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 in your array. To get 1-10 in the array using the latter format you can change the value of i so it ranges from 1 and <= 10 or from 1 to < 11. Or you can leave the range of i as you have it and change the value assigned to list[j] by always adding 1 to i before the assignment.

    Yes. And you should be careful with i and j as identifiers. They look strikingly similar in certain commonly used fonts.

    Hmmm, I havent seen this yet, any reason why ?
    Code:
    int _tmain(int argc, _TCHAR* argv[])
    {
    
    	for ( int i = 1; i < 11; i++ ) {
    
    		if( i % 2 == 0)
    			continue;
    
    		cout << i << endl;
    	}
    	return 0;
    }
    Is this not a good practice ?
    He did not say how this was to be done, so I would think this would be the simplest way to do it for a beginner.

    Seen what? Modulus to determine even and odd?

    >int _tmain(int argc, _TCHAR* argv[])
    Seeing as how _tmain isn't the standard entry point into a C++ program, and you don't use the arguments that you declare (and barring any funky requirements for you outside of this forum), it should be this:
    Code:
    int main()


    >Is this not a good practice ?
    I don't see any problem, stylistically, with the algorithm.

    Thx for the reply. But what I meant was since he only had to have the program list number 1 thru 10 and then output the odd ones. Why something like the code I posted was not used? It seems simple enough for someone starting out.He didnt specify how to get the numbers just that he had too,that is all.Aslo i just let visual studio genrate the app for me..I was feeling to lazy to add a cpp.But normaly i do add my own with int main().

    thks

    Because the original question was how to write 10 numbers to a list and then remove the odd numbers. That suggests saving intermediate values (as in an array) rather than the test and print solution you posted.
