Thread: Loops

  1. #1


    I made a program that reads golf scores and pars from a file.
    It then assigns the appropriate comment depending on the score.
    Everything works fine, but I also need the sum of all the scores.
    How do I use a loop to read the file again and add the scores and return their sum.
    Any help would be appreciated

    Without looking at the source it's a little difficult to help you out. Here is the syntax for a basic while loop.

    while( condition ) // example: while( bDone == false )
         // Execute
         // These
         // Statements
    Alternatively, if you know the exact number of iterations try a for loop.
    for( variable x; condition; increment )
         // Do this
    If you knew you wanted to loop 5 times you could do this. All this does is says while i is less than 5 keep executing code, and i++ simply increments the variable i AFTER the last line of code. If you want i to increment first, simply change i++ to ++i.

    for( int i = 0; i < 5; i++ )
         // Foo
    Hope this helped a little.
