    Menu Trouble

    I'm having trouble in getting the function in my program below to print out the menu, anu ideas?

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    
    int MenuAndMenuChoice();
    
    int main()
    {
        
        int MenuAndMenuChoice();
        
        std::cin.get();
        return 0;
    }
    
    int MenuAndMenuChoice()
    {
        
        int MenuChoice;
        
        std::cout << "Add";
        std::cout << "Subtract";
        std::cout << "Multiply";
        std::cout << "Divide";
        std::cout << "Circle Area";
        std::cout << "Circle Circumference";
    
        std::cout << "What would you like to do? ";
        std::cin >> MenuChoice;
        
        return MenuChoice;
        
    }

    You never invoked (called) the menu function.

    Go back to your original <iostream>, and change main():

    Code:
     int main()
    {
        
        int MenuAndMenuChoice(); // this is the prototype declaration
        
        MenuAndMenuChoice(); // this is the invocation
        std::cin.get();
        return 0;
    }
    Regards,

    Actually MenuAndMenuChoice() has been declared twice. Once before main and once within main. Change the prototype in main into a function call.

    And don't add '.h' to the iostream header. <iostream> is standard, <iostream.h> is not.
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.
