    Hey guys im trying to make a horizontal histogram how would i set my loop up so i can print
    the array out

    enter frequencies 2 5 10 4 123

    2 4 5 6 7 8 etc

    i have it printing the horizontal axis of numbers
    0 5 10 15 20 25 30 35

    how would i make that?

    i have already done the input of 20 integers which is stored into an array
    im pretty desperate this is due today

    The for loop, using the count of the number of integers entered as the stopper for the loop, makes a natural outer loop. Inside this for loop, try a while array element > number++..

    If the array element being looked at is > the number being compared with, then print a '*', otherwise print a newline '\n'.

    For further help, you'll need to post your code, and it's output, so we're not yakking incomprehensible nonsense, guessing.

    What you want (isn't this the 3rd or 4th thread about the same thing) is the following:

    for (all the numbers in my array)
        i = 0;
        while (i < number from my array)
            print "*"
        print '\n'

    Two nested for loop would work quite well.
