    Smile Max Of Ascii

    hi everyone, here is one code that i stuck with

    the aim of this program is to find the largest ascii code that was converted by the given lowercase name.

    Code:
        for(int i = 0; name[i]; i++)
        {
        	lowerCase = static_cast<char>(tolower(name[i]));//convert to lowercase
        	
       		for(int j = 0; lowerCase[j]; j++)
        	{
         		int lower =  lowerCase[0];//find lowercase ASCII
         		
         		cout<<lower<<" ";
        	} 
            
       	}
    can someone please

    i am thkning to use max_value but still couldnt make it.

    1. there is no need to typecase tolower().
    2. why the inner loop? just use another int object to keep track of the lowest value while the outer loop is running, which will make your program run a whole lot faster. For example
    Code:
    int max_value = -1;
       for(int i = 0; name[i]; i++)
        {
        	int lowerCase = tolower(name[i]);//convert to lowercase
            if( lowerCase > max_value)
                 max_value = lowerCase;
        }
        cout << "max = " << max_value << endl;

    It assigns -1 to the integer variable max_value. There are no ascii codes lower than -1.

    actully there are no ascii codes lower than 0. EOF (-1) is not an ascii code. ascii codes are in the range 0-127.
