i get a couple error messages when i try to compile this program...I dont understand how to fix them and i was hoping for some help.....The error messages i get are:

error C2146: syntax error : missing ';' before identifier 'inData'

fatal error C1004: unexpected end of file found

here is my code:

If you're going to do using namespace std, put it immediately after your includes. As it is, you're using ifstream and ofstream without qualifying the namespace.

thanks but now im getting this error about by fuctions:

error C2664: 'Load' : cannot convert parameter 1 from 'float' to 'float [][100]'
There is no context in which this conversion is possible

any ideas?

>error C2664: 'Load' : cannot convert parameter 1 from 'float' to 'float [][100]'
You're passing a float but the function expects a two dimensional array of floats. The fix for this should be obvious.
