I have this code working to great now. but I am trying to pretty it up and now I cant see my cout ... Maybe a new set of eyes on it will help me. I am missing something .. I may have deleted a cout but I dont see it.

thanks for any help

I'm getting a "Debug assertion failed" error in Visual Studio in the loop in lines 79 and 80. Note: I had to change the code in line 42 from "Contributor.h" to "contributor.h" to match the filename.

Yea man that is the same thing I am getting in Dev C++. I had it working fine before I giggled it ... I wonder waht I did

It looks to me like these comments on lines 78 and 86 are a problem. I deleted them and the program ran. Some type of unseen stray character or something that makes the compiler not realize when the comment is over?

I have this code working to great now. but I am trying to pretty it up and now I cant see my cout ... Maybe a new set of eyes on it will help me. I am missing something .. I may have deleted a cout but I dont see it.

thanks for any help

hey bro how did you get the function to work properly
