Hi everyone,

I am a newbie here and I haven't read anything--I know I should. Sorry in advance if I break any rules in this posting.

I am having a problem with this project I am working on. The assignment is to create an application that will give a user the choice of displaying the roman numeral equivalence of a number between 1 and 10 or displaying a count of roman numerals from 1 to 10.

program should not end before the user decides to end it
must use the if, while, for and switch structures in code
and output format should resemble:

"This program can display any roman # between 1 and 10.
This program can also count from 1 to 10 in roman #

enter the # 1 to display the roman equivalent of a number
enter #2 to count from 1 to 10 in roman numerals
enter any other # to end application

enter ur choice.... 1

enter any # from 1 to 10: 7

roman numeral VII Decimal 7

and it should loop back to enter 1 or 2 options

than enter ur choice 2

it should list roman numeral I-X and decimal 1-10 but in 2 separate rows

if anyone could help it would really be appreciative...i think im going through writers block

If you knew you should, why didn't you?
One of the rules is if you show no work = no help.

Damn straight!

Because I didn't feel like it at that time...

i have no work to show because i dont know where to start or how to set it up. if i did i wouldve posted it.

How about starting with the basics, like making sure the 1, 2, 3 bit works

Like if you input 1, all you have is
cout << "Choice is 1" << endl;

If you can do that much, fine - then we can work on the next step.
If you can't, there's no point in starting out with an explanation of the finer points of roman numerals.

Your code helps us calibrate our answers to be most useful to you.

nevermind

Oh let me state whats wrong..lol

1.) I have to enter #1 choice twice before it displays what number needing to translate.

2.) when i enter choice 2 it does not display the roman numerals for 1 through 10

thanks!!

ok another thing is...i need someone to run it if they can because it also wont display correct roman numerals/decimals...... i messed something up.

Run what? I don't see any code.

Running this code

``````//============================================================================
// Name        : mashley09_daniweb.cpp
// Author      : chococrack
// Version     : 1.0
//============================================================================

2.) when i enter choice 2 it does not display the roman numerals for 1 through 10``````

The mingw compiler gives me the following error (in Eclipse)
