ooops.. one more thing.. while compiling the program i got a warning :- Functions containing while are not expanded inline ..What do is that?:s

For me it doesn't give a warning... I'm using Dev-C++ and it works completely fine.

hii

I tied adding the time limit.. got 6 errors\11:| is there anyway to get the "error log" in turbo c"" so that i could paste it here...

here is the code

#include <stdlib.h>
   
      #include <iostream.h>
   
      #include<conio.h>

      exit(0);

       }

else

      if (num==random_integer)

      {

      game gam1;
  
      gam1.playgame();
  
      cin.get();
  
      }

anyone please tell me about exit(0);!! why isnt it working?? should i replace it with a break;? ant what abt an infinte loop which works till the user makes a wrong answer or the user presses "esc"!! for "esc" to be working i think i should define it with #define..right? how can i do it?... :idea:

Well Just Put The Function outside the Class Declaration and it will do fine.

Dont forget to add

"void Game::"

0

You get errors because you didn't write a number a closed brackets after "if((clock()-StartTyping)/CLOCKS_PER_SEC>"
(Example: "if((clock()-StartTyping)/CLOCKS_PER_SEC>5)"

Also, you should put the "StartTyping=clock();" inside the while loop.

clock() returns the time in milliseconds since the program started. CLOCKS_PER_SECOND is a defined constant and its value is 1000 (makes clock()/CLOCKS_PER_SECOND return the seconds since the program started).

well..i didnt get you..! you mean the init_screen() function,right?.. where should i put it?... Am confused..please please help me

He means that you should move the function declaration outside the class declaration.
Instead of:

public:
   
      int num,random_integer,score;
   
      void dispnum();
   
      void getnum();
  
      void result();
  
      void playgame()
  
      {
  
      int i=0;
      
      score=0;
      
      StartTyping=clock();

  
      while(i<=3)
  
      {
  
      dispnum();
  
      getnum();
  
      result();
  
      i++;
  
      }
  
      }
  
      };

do it like that:

public:
   
      int num,random_integer,score;
   
      void dispnum();
   
      void getnum();
  
      void result();
  
      void playgame();
  };

void game::playgame()
      {
  
      int i=0;
      
      score=0;
      
      StartTyping=clock();

  
      while(i<=3)
  
      {
  
      dispnum();
  
      getnum();
  
      result();
  
      i++;
  
      }
  
      }

I don't think there is a difference, except for the way it's written.
About your code, you forgot to put "game::" before the function declaration, and a "{" when you start declaring it.

>what is the difference between return 0 and return(0) ?
Personal preference. Redundant parentheses are allowed, and the effect is the same.

For me it works fine... except it doesn't show the message - it closes it program immediately. Maybe you better add a Sleep(TIME) in your code instead of cin.get().
Also, you may want to put the following code to show the player how many seconds it took him:
cout<<"It took you "<<(clock()-StartTyping)/CLOCKS_PER_SEC<<" seconds!";

0

hii..i added cin.get(); before exit(0);.. now whenever a wrong answer is entered it comes straight to the source code.. "Gameover " is not being showed.. i guess exit(0); wont allow it.. so should i add flag instead of exit(0); but i dont know how to add flag.. pls help me
cout<<"wrong answer! Gameover!"<< endl;

cout<<"Your final score is "<<score;

cin.get();

exit(0);

0

Simply declare a variable (name doesn't matter. In this case I'll call it ExitFlag).
At the beginning initialize it to 0, and when the game is over, make its value 1. Furthermore, change the while loop to "while(ExitFlag==0)" or "while(!ExitFlag)"

You can make the flag value anything you like, just remember the values of each situation.
For your convenience, you can define constant variables to help you remember.
I, for example, use the following definitions many times:
#define YES 1
#define NO 0

('true' and 'false' have the same values of my 'YES' and 'NO')

0

The flag should be of bool type, and you don't have to define anything (if it is really C++)

HEY TRIED adding sleep(TIME) added dos.h.. yet error shows that spee should have prototype..i thought #include<dos.h> is it prototype.. but what is the value of TIME here?.. should i declare it? I got to go now.. will add the modified code tomorrow.. Many thanks to everyone who help me... and anyone please help me abt that graphics function.. init_screen()

i would love to add so font styles to it


bye

Flag is just like a normal variable, but changes values according to the situation and the program is tracking its value to know what to do.

About the Sleep() function, instead of the "TIME" put a number. The program will sleep for that number*milliseconds and then will continue. The header should be <windows.h>

It works fine for me... but you made the program sleep 10 milliseconds (1/100 the second). You need to put the seconds*1000 inside the parentheses (examples for ten seconds: Sleep(10000) or Sleep(10*CLOCKS_PER_SEC) ).

goto is a statement that tells the program to jump to another place in the program, ignoring everything in between.
It's quite dangerous to use, but I don't see any other simple solution in this case. Just create a label before cin.get() and a goto statement when the game is over.
Example of use:

if(GameOver==true) goto end;
else // do something else

end:
cin.get();

It seems now this thread looks like a horrible mash of valued receipts and consumate gibberish advices.
You can't use windows.h header with aged 16-bit Turbo C++ 3.0 compiler.
You can't use goto statement to jump into the main function from outside its body.
You can't do the simplest thing: to present your snippets in a proper way:
[code=cplusplus] your sources

[/code]
Free advice: stop this thread, start from the beginning. Declare well-defined problem in the header of a new thread, present selected suspicious code then ask help on the problem...
Of course, it's my own opinion only ;)...

One is extremely old (your version of Turbo C++) and one is current (Visual C++). Visual C++ Express is free, as is Dev C++ and Code Blocks, which both use modern compilers. You can download all three for free via the internet and install them and run them, so there is really no reason to use the old stuff, in my view, particularly if you're starting now. Your school's lack of resources are not a problem, since like I said, it's free. Why not use the most current version, which will let you get rid of the old, antiquated headers. Very few people are going to have that compiler installed, so we can't run most of your code without changing it. I agree with ArkM on this one. The thread has gotten too long and meandering. Try to consolidate the advice into a working program, take what is useful, and throw out the rest. Get an up to date compiler, get rid of the all the old headers with .h at the end of them, and start over. If need be, start a new thread.
