I do not know how to write a function for this. I have written just the base line of the code, but I do not know how to finish it. Here is the description.

A void Function tagReader inputs the data collected by the cylinders; it has two parameters: the input file and an int count. The function inputs names, serial numbers, and location coordinates from the input file. The input file will have a descriptive name, an integer serial number and two double values representing map coordinates separated by blanks on each line. For each cylinder, echo print to the screen, the name, serial number and both coordinate values along with the value of the smaller coordinate value. Use an EOF controlled while loop. A count of the number of entries in the file will be returned to the caller via the reference parameter count.

I don't see an "an EOF controlled while loop" anywhere in the code at all. We can't help fix what's not there. Set up the WHILE loop, read from inFile, and when EOF is reached, exit the loop.

I do not know how to write EOF controlled while loops.

There are plenty of examples on this site. Use SEARCH.

Would you write a EOF loop as:

while(inFile){
}

and include it in the void tagReader section

I wouldn't. I'd do the search and learn from what I find.

Thanks for not helping me. I really appreciate it. I am only a student taking my first programming class.

I'm sorry. I didn't realize the only help that will be accepted is to have us write the code for you. I was hoping you'd be interested in learning enough to do some of your own work, not rely on others to do it for you. Again, sorry.

Its alright, I am not relying to you, but I tried searching and can not find an answer. Could you provide a link on eof controlled loops?

Here is my code: I do not know why when I compile it, on why does the last cylinder file print out multiple times int tags1 and tags2. I bolded them so you would see what I am talking about. Could someone please help me out?

#include <iostream>
#include <fstream>
#include <iomanip>
#include <string>

using namespace std;
// function prototypes
void  tagReader ( ifstream& inFile, int&count);
void getEmployee ( string& who, double& rate, int &hours );
double paycheck (int hours, double rate);
void repeater ( string word, int num);
bool valid (int val);
void header ();


//=========================================================
int main() 
{    
    int count = 0; 
    ifstream inFile;
    string cylinder, serial;
    double num1, num2;
    double counter;
   
    //----------------------------------------
    // Call function tagReader with tags1.txt
    inFile.open("tags1.txt");
    
    if (!inFile) 
    {
        cout << "\n\nError! - Invalid file name!  (1)\n\n";
        system ("pause");
        return 1;
    }
         inFile >> cylinder;
         while (inFile) 
         {
    
         inFile>> serial;
         inFile >> num1;
         inFile >> num2;
         cout << fixed << showpoint << setprecision(2);
         cout <<"Cylinder: " << cylinder << " " << serial << " " << num1 << " " << num2 << endl << endl;   
         count = 1;
         counter++;
         while (count < num1)
         {     inFile >> cylinder ;
               inFile >> serial;
               inFile >> num1;
               inFile >> num2;
               cout << "\nCylinder: " << cylinder << " " << serial << " " << num1 << " " << num2 << endl << endl; 
               count++;        
         }
       }

    cout <<"Results from tags1.txt :\n";
    tagReader ( inFile, count);    
    cout << "File tags1.txt had " << count << " data items. \n\n";
    inFile.close ();
    
    //----------------------------------------
    // Call function tagReader with tags2.txt
    inFile.clear (); 
    inFile.open("tags2.txt");
    if (!inFile) 
         {
          cout << "\n\nERROR!  Invalid file name! (2)\n\n";
          system ("pause");
          return 1;
         }   
         
         inFile >> cylinder;
         while (inFile) 
         {
    
         inFile>> serial;
         inFile >> num1;
         inFile >> num2;
         cout << fixed << showpoint << setprecision(2);
         cout <<"Cylinder: " << cylinder << " " << serial << " " << num1 << " " << num2 << endl << endl;   
         count = 1;
         counter++;
         while (count < num1)
         {     inFile >> cylinder ;
               inFile >> serial;
               inFile >> num1;
               inFile >> num2;
               cout << "\nCylinder: " << cylinder << " " << serial << " " << num1 << " " << num2 << endl << endl; 
               count++;        
         }
       }

    cout <<"Results from tags2.txt :\n";
    tagReader ( inFile, count);    
    cout << "File tags2.txt had " << count << " data items. \n\n";
    inFile.close ();
    
   system("pause");
   return 0;
