    How do I get Rid of Warning messages after I compile??

    I just finished my Program #3 for my first C++ class and I have a couple of qeustions about it. Our teacher gave us the main coding to this, all we had to do was define the functions of the program to make it run properly. Well, after I have defined the functions and compile and link it, it gives me "warning messages" about changing assignment "int" to "double". Could someone look over my program and please explain to me how to fix this? Also, does anyone have any suggestions on changing anything about this program? The program does what it is suppost to do, but is there anything that should be "fine-tuned". Your help is much appreciated!!!! Thanks, Brent

    What compiler do you use? That shouldn't be a warning because there's no potential loss of data. It compiles without error or warning on MSVC++.

    My best code is written with the delete key.

    If you just want to not see those warning messages, then you can either do an explicit type cast for all those "int" to "double" assignments, or you can put a "#pragma warning(dissable:????)" command towards the top of your code where ???? is the number of the compiler warning that gets spit out.

    I use PcGrasp, with a Cygnus Beta 20 Compiler, Is there anyway to change, in the program, an assigned value from Int to Double, or Visa versa??

    Yes - it's called casting.

    double i = 4.0534;
    int j;
    j = (int) i;

    In the example above, i is represented as an integer, for that line only.
