Hello! How is everyone? I have been working on this for about a week and a half, and I need it to function properly. I am going to be using this program to build my next assignment, thus needing it to work properly.

My problem: I am trying to write a program that uses a .txt file with about roughly 732 first names. I would like to ask the user input two first names of their choice, and the program is required to search for them (No fancy algorithms required, just a basic straight down the list "brute force" search.).
I get the program to run though just fine except my results of the search return that neither of the names are found. Which I know these names are in the list, and I am greatly troubled by this program. If there are any issues right off the bat with my code let me know. If my logic of the code is a bit choppy tell me how I can go about and fix it.
The one problem keeping my program from properly working is the search function, everything else is functional. Any help to fix my search function will be greatly appreciated, Thank You!

First of all I think over the top commenting can sometimes make the code quite unreadable, I prefer using block comment above a function describing what it does instead of comments scattered all over the place. But that's your choice.

You could have easily debugged this problem had you put some couts at a few places. The problem is with the bool values, result_NameONE and result_NameTWO, in these 2 functions above. Can you see it now??

Why do you continue once you have a match? Just break right there.

Edited 6 Years Ago by Agni: n/a

Two main problems:
1) WriteOutput() is destroying the value of result_NameONE and result_NameTWO. Delete those two lines at the beginning of that function because they are set in the Search function.

2) SearchNames() -- the last two parameters must be passed by reference. That function is also much more complicated than it needs to be. Here's another way to do it

void FindName(string names[], int rTotal, string sname, int &count, bool& result)
{
    for(int i = 0; i < rTotal; i++)
    {
        if( names[i] == sname)
        {
            count = i;
            result = true;
            break;
        }
    }
}
void SearchNames(string names[], int &rTotal, string &rNameONE, string &rNameTWO, 
				 int &rCount_NameONE, int &rCount_NameTWO, bool& result_NameONE,
				 bool& result_NameTWO)
{
	/* This is the search function that implements a basic brut force
	   search to find the specified names that the user inputs. */
	rCount_NameONE = 0;
	rCount_NameTWO = 0;

	result_NameONE = false;
	result_NameTWO = false;
    FindName(names, rTotal, rNameONE, rCount_NameONE, result_NameONE);
    FindName(names, rTotal, rNameTWO, rCount_NameTWO, result_NameTWO);

		
}
