    two-dimensional array question

    I'm starting to design a basic minesweep type program. The minefield is going to be a two-dimensional array. When it prints out, the field gets shifted over one space in the 10th row since 10 is obviously larger than 9. Any suggestions on how to make it even?


    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <conio>
    using namespace std;
    
    
    void main()
    {
            int row, col, x;
            col=0;
            row=0;
            x=1;
    
            cout<<"         1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10";
            char minefield[10][10];
    
            for (row=0; row<10; row++)
            {
                    cout<<"\nRow "<<x<<":  ";
                    x=x++;
    
                    for (col=0; col<10; col++)
                    {
                            cout<<" -";
                    }
    
            }
    
    
            getch();
    }

    > void main()
    It's int main - see the FAQ

    > x=x++;
    This is undefined - do one of
    x++;
    x = x + 1;
    x += 1;

    > cout<<"\nRow "<<x<<": ";
    Perhaps you also want to output the width of the field as well, as in
    cout<<"\nRow "<< setw(2) << x<<": ";

    I think you also need to
    #include <iomanip>
    as well
