This program needs to read the infile and calculate the temperatures for each function. I can only get it to output 0's. Can someone explain the steps needed to make this code work correctly? What am I missing? Should I be passing by reference? If so how??

Look at your function getData(). It isn't reading the data from the file -- all it is reading is two numbers called low and high. What its supposed to do is read all the numbers into the array temp. You will have to add a loop so that it can do that.

Ok, I have narrowed it down to me needing a while loop. But I am having trouble understanding how to use it correctly. Can someone give me an example of a while loop that reads from a one column in a txt infile and reads to the end?
Here is what I came up with-
infile example:
34 -12
30 -21
32 -18
40 -5
52 10
75 32

while (inFile)
       {
             if (row = 0; row < 13; row++)
             {
                     inFile >>high >> low;
                     }
             if (col = 0; col < 13; col++)
             {
                     inFile>>high >>low;

does the file contain those dashes you posted ? If not, then just do something like this:

while( inFile >> temp[i][0] >> temp[i][1])
{
    ++i;
}

you have the rows and columns of that temp array backwards. row should be 12 and columns should be 2. You want the array to look something like this:

Col1  Col2
