oohh..Am extremely sorry.. Of course I was not shouting.. :) I am new to this community..that is why i was unaware of the rules.. will obey them from now onwards ...

An I have a doubt.. i thought getch() is the standard c++ thingy.. and getchar is the C one.. !

thanks for informing...

bye

Not really. getchar() is the standard C, and cin.get(); (from the std namespace) is the 'standard' C++ one.
Getch() is something Borland Turbo C++ came up with and although it has it's purposes, it is not standard C/C++ so a lot of compilers won't compile your code. (same goes for clrscr() btw)

Hmmmm, I'm not to sure if your teacher is forcing a particular method, but mod is useful for this kind of thing:

int iNum(7);
bool bPrime(false);
//since even primes have a factor of 1
//and themself, start at 2 and stop 1 less than the number
for (int i = 2; i < iNum - 1; ++i)
{
//if there is no remainder, its not prime!
if (!(i % iNum))
{
bPrime = true;
break;
}
}

That's the simplest method I can think of, although I'm sure there's several more.

Looks like somebody already posted a better version of my code :P . I guess it makes sense to only iterate halfway through iNum...
