ok, so ive rattled my brain for quite some time now and im tired, i need help on my program because as of now, im down to 2 debugging errors "YAY!"...
here is what the debugger says...
"
Line 7: error: too few arguments to function `void nextArray(bool (*)[20])'
Line 25: error: at this point in file
Line 8: error: too few arguments to function `void printArray(bool (*)[20])'
Line 26: error: at this point in file
"

and here is my code...

#include <iostream>
#include <fstream>
using namespace std;

const int SIZE = 20;
void lifegrid(int , int , bool [] [SIZE]);
void nextArray(bool [] [SIZE]);
void printArray(bool [] [SIZE]);


int main ()

	string keyboardinput;
	

	
	do {
		keyboardinput = "";
		cout << "Enter \"n\" for next cycle, anything else to quit... ";
		cin >> keyboardinput;
		cout << endl;
		
		nextArray();
		printArray();
		cout << endl;//total alive in row 10
        int row=10;
        int rowtotal=0;
        for (int col = 0; col < SIZE; col++)
        {
            if(life[row][col])
            rowtotal=rowtotal+1;
        }
        cout<<"total alive in row 10 is "<<rowtotal<<endl;

i know its kind of crappy and a bit hacked together, but thats how i role... my hair is a mess too... help would be much appreciated, as the program is due in 21 hours... i am eager to learn anything you guys can throw at me to fix what i need to fix to get this program off my back.
thanks a bunch, hope some 1 can help me ^_^

> nextArray();
You said it needed a parameter, but you didn't pass any!

Try
nextArray(life);

oh haha, thanks, well, now it compiles... but it crashes and i get an error report when i try to do anything... so ive scraped that code and redone my program...
