hello,

im just learning c++ and was wondering if any one could spare the time to explain to me what each line of the ollowing code does,

this is no my code i was just hoping to see what each lines does to see if it wil make it clearer.

thank you

  else if (cur_val=='O')

  else if (cur_val=='*')
    cout << "*"; // val is 2, so draw a '*'

It gives me a headache... thats what it does. But seriously, I think its some kind of tic-tac-toe or connect four game.

If you could throw some delicious code tags around it, that would be helpful.

Under your post, click "Edit this post"
Then add [*code=c++] before your code and [*/code] after but without the *'s.

If you are just learning C++ I suggest you start like everyone else : figure out how "Hello world!" works in C++

Under your post, click "Edit this post"
Then add [*code=c++] before your code and [*/code] after but without the *'s.

[noparse][/noparse] tags are also brilliant!

I agree with ddanbe, you should start simple. Don't just dive into someone elses code and expect to be able to understand it all from the go.
