Since you have a count "friends" of the number of entries you started with, just increment it friends++; and update the appropriate array entry with the values they enter. I don't know if you are required to, but you could also expand the array once the number of entries exceeds the initial 200 you have defined.

(note: I changed your [icode] tags to [code]

[/code] tags in the quoted code. Icode tags do not preserve the formatting in the same manner as code tags. I also reformatted to tabs of 4 spaces instead of 8 because it was sprawling all over the place. 8 space indentation is just too much.)
