    int array isn't storing proper values.

    This is my code, I stripped it down to make it easier to help.

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    void showTemps(int[], int);
    
    int main()
    {
        int temp[10] = {32, 24, 29, 41, 60, 
                        67, 78, 88, 93, 102};
        int date[10] = {010106 , 012506 , 022006 , 031206 , 040706 , 042706 , 051506 , 060106 , 062706 , 072506};
                   
                        
        int inputDate = 0;
        int counter = 0;
        
        cout << "Please input date(mmddyy): ";
        cin >> inputDate;
        
        showTemps(date, 10);
        cin >> inputDate;
        return 0;
    }
    
    void showTemps(int nums[], int size)
    {
         for (int index = 0; index < size; index++)
             cout << nums[index] << endl;
    }
    so, it should output the numbers in the date array, right?
    THis is what I get:
    4166
    5446
    9222
    12934
    16838
    17862
    21318
    24646
    26054
    30022

    Also, it got upset with certain numbers when I was trying to put them into the array. such as 012906 wouldn't work, while 012506 will.

    Code:
    010106
    Numbers prefixed with 0 in C and C++ are octal numbers. And you can't store a leading zero in any case. The best way to store something like that is to use a string.

    [edit] And to keep your console open, read this FAQ:
