    Exclamation .exe not working?

    I have made another program, a blackjack. I have compiled it with no problems but it seems that .exe is not working.

    Here's the code:
    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include<conio.h>
    #include<stdlib.h>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    int main(int argc, char *argv[])
    {
     int cash=10000, hit, bet, decide1, decide2, enemy;
     int pips1, pips2, pips3, pips4, suit1, suit2, Ace=11, Jack=10, Queen=10, King=10, Spades, Clubs, Diamonds, Hearts;
     int value=pips1+pips2+pips3+pips4;
     char retry, y, n, h, s, d;
     
     
     void clrscr();
       std::cout<<"Welcome to Blackjack. You'll start with $" << cash << "\n";
       
      betting:
       std::cout<<"You have $"  << cash << ".\nPlace your bet.\n";
       std::cin>>bet;
       //if(cash>=0)
       //{
       //goto lost;
       //}  
       if(cash<bet)
       {
       std::cout<<"You do not have enough money. Please place a lower bet.\n";
       goto betting;
       }   
       else
       {
       cash=cash-bet;
       std::cout<<"Bet: $" << bet << " Cash in hand: $" << cash << "\n";
       goto player;
       }
       
      do 
      {
      player:   
      std::cout<<"We will draw 2 cards from the deck\n";  
      int randomize();

    Absolutely nothing. Nothing blinks but when I look at the taskmgr(Windows Task Manager) it's running.

    1) Try to get rid of all the goto's. goto is not a keyword that you'd normally use for program flow control (these are if, else, for, while, do and switch).

    2)
    Code:
    pips3==1==Ace;
    What exactly are statements like these supposed to do? (They do nothing.)

    3)
    Code:
    int randomize();
    This, and similar things are not function calls, but declarations, that there exists a function called randomize that takes no arguments and returns an int.
    If you have a function called randomize and you want to call it, drop the int.

    Edit:
    4) Try to get rid of non-standard "conio.h". Other people may not have it and can't try to compile your code. Clearing the screen is no that important.

    5)
    While it is understandable that a beginner has enough trouble with deciphering compiler errors, it wouldn't hurt to turn on its warnings (somewhere in the compiler settings). With DevC++ I got the following warnings from your code:

    Untitled1.cpp:43: warning: statement has no effect
    ... same thing on many other lines

    Untitled1.cpp:9: warning: unused variable 'hit'

    Untitled1.cpp:205: warning: label `computer' defined but not used

    Untitled1.cpp: At global scope:

    Untitled1.cpp:8: warning: unused parameter 'argc'
    Untitled1.cpp:8: warning: unused parameter 'argv'

    Untitled1.cpp: In function `int main(int, char**)':
    Untitled1.cpp:9: warning: 'enemy' might be used uninitialized in this function
    Untitled1.cpp:10: warning: 'pips1' might be used uninitialized in this function
    Untitled1.cpp:10: warning: 'pips2' might be used uninitialized in this function
    Untitled1.cpp:10: warning: 'pips3' might be used uninitialized in this function
    Untitled1.cpp:10: warning: 'pips4' might be used uninitialized in this function
    Untitled1.cpp:12: warning: 'h' might be used uninitialized in this function
    Untitled1.cpp:12: warning: 's' might be used uninitialized in this function
    Untitled1.cpp:12: warning: 'd' might be used uninitialized in this function
    Basically, this all says, there is no hope your code would do anything useful as it is and as long as you don't fix the listed problems.

    Help me with this I'm just starting today because I needed to.

    1. I don't know how to make it work without utilizing goto's. Mind if you give me an example from my codes.

    2. I don't know if that's correct. What I mean by that is when "1" is called by the randomize, it will also be known as Ace rather than just 1.

    3. I can't remove int. Bloodshed(compiler) needs every function defined.

    I'm using MSVC 8. When I compile I get about 47 warnings. When I run it, I get a runtime error saying pips1 is being used without being defined.

    It looks to me like you coded like a madman, without taking your time and compiling after you've finished a section of code. Now you have the long journey of looking through your mess of a code, to try and find what's happening.

    Sorry dude. I have to make this as fast as possible. I didn't have any time to read books, in fact. Got to pass this 2 days from now.

    2 days is more than enough to take your time and do it right. Pros have to get a hell of a lot more done in 2 days than this, so you should get used to the pressure now.

    You have two choices: either you read some tutorials and try to learn something, or write meaningless lines of codes and not make it.

    Actually I only have hours left.

    One hour left it will be only for one day and tomorrow I have school for the whole day.

    Right now I'm rewriting the code.

    Right now I'm rewriting the code.
    This time, try to see the difference between assinging and comparing for equality, and between function declarations and calls.

    And hopefully rewriting the code doesn't mean retyping something similar. Write a few lines of code, compile it and verify that they indeed do what you expect, then write some more. Etc.

    Good Luck.

    Please remember that for beginners, it is easier to code a little piece of code only and then test it thoroughly, before continuing. That should reduce the chance to find unexplainable errors later on.

    Oh yeah how can I return to a code if I'll not be using goto????

    For example,

    I have lost the round and want to return to the 1st stage(which is betting) how can I go back there?

    Try using a function call. Place that first round in a function and call it when you need it.
