    In dire need of some help

    Hey guys,

    First of all, love the boards. They have definetly helped me through some tough times this semester. That being said, I need some help here.

    I am taking an Intro to Computer Science Class at a local community college. Its about a 35 minute drive every Tuesday and Thursday morning. I havent been able to go as of late because I have a full-time job as Video Producer and Graphic Designer. I work for a small publishing company and have some big very important release dates coming up.

    My brothers wedding is also this Saturday and my fiance and I are still planning our wedding which is coming up very soon!

    The only reason i'm taking this class is because at college, this is a prerequisite for HTML course. Doesn't make any sense to me either but its the hand I'm dealt with.

    I am not a computer Science Porogramming and never will be.

    I need help with this assignment. The assignment is due Thursday.

    The assignemt is:

    Write a Program that reads the integers between 1 and 100 and counts the occurrence of each number. Assume the input ends with 0.

    **Note** if a number occurs more than one time, the plural word "times" is used in the output.


    Heres the coding I have so far:

    #include <iostream>
    #include <cstdlib>
    #include <string>
    using namespace std;
    int inVal = 0;// for the entry of each value
    int valTally[100] = {0};// a place to store the counts for each number which could be entered.
        string num = "";
        char search = '0';
        int i = 0;
        int count = 0;
    	cout << "Enter a value of 1-100 (0 to quit): "; cin >> inVal;
        // check that inVal is in range so the array bounds aren't exceeded
    	// tally the value
    }while(inVal != 0);
        for (i = 0; i < num.length(); i++)
            //cout << num[i] << endl;
            if ( num[i] == search )
        cout << endl << "Number of occurences: " << count << endl;
        return 0;

    What do you have for your " // tally the value " area? that is sort of important, and simple.
    Add 1 to the counter for whatever number is entered.

    Used the way you are, num[100] cannot tally a value entered of 100. Maybe you want to increase the upper bound of num a bit so you can work more easily in natural numbers?

    You aren't using "time" or "times" in your output.
    From the description of the problem, you want something like:

    The number 5 occurs 1 time.
    The number 11 occurs 23 times.

    Do you have any problems/questions about the posted code?

    Does the code compile without errors/warnings?

    If not post the complete error/warning message.

    Is the program producing the desired output?

    Give us a small sample of the input required to run the program and then tell us what output the program is producing and what you think this program should produce.
