    Question using functions...

    Can anyone help me figure out why this isn't compileing, i basiclly want the program to tell me if the array is all even. but its not compiling.

    I keep getting these compiling errors

    12 C:\Dev-Cpp\main.cpp expected `)' before '!' token
    16 C:\Dev-Cpp\main.cpp expected primary-expression before "else"
    16 C:\Dev-Cpp\main.cpp expected `;' before "else"
    18 C:\Dev-Cpp\main.cpp expected primary-expression before "int"
    18 C:\Dev-Cpp\main.cpp expected `;' before "int"
    24 C:\Dev-Cpp\main.cpp expected `}' at end of input

    #include <iostream>
    using namespace std;
    bool All_Even()
        int x;
        int a_array[5]= {4,2,4,5,6};
        while(x =0 < 5)
                  if (a_array[x]!% = 0)
                     return false;
                  else return true;
    int main()    
         cout<<"this program is all even" << All_even;
        return 0;

    !&#37; is not a valid token.

    Note that (x=0 < 5) does not do what you want to do -- you're trying to do a for loop, so use a for loop.

    You're also missing an open curly brace and a close curly brace.

    Also: All_even does not exist, since you created a function called All_Even. Had you spelled it correctly, the function would still not be called, since functions are not called unless they are followed by parentheses.

    if you had proper indentation - you would see the problem with braces
    while(x =0 < 5)
        if (a_array[x]!&#37; = 0)
        return false;
    else return true; // else without if
    To be or not to be == true
