hey guys!
mind if you help me here?

we were asked to make a grading system.
here is my code..

#include <iostream>
#include <string>
#include <cstdlib>
#include <iomanip>
using namespace std;

void main()
{
	system("CLS");
	char fn[50],ln[50];
	string *name, *enam, temp, *R, wN, fin, lan;
	double gr, *g, temp2, *EQ;
	int x,y;
	name= new string [5];
	enam= new string [5];
	g=new double [5];
	EQ=new double[1];
	R=new string[1];

	char ans='N';

	do
	{
		cout<<"\t\t\t******************"<<endl;
		cout<<"\t\t\t  Grading System  "<<endl;
		cout<<"\t\t\t******************"<<endl;
		
		for (x=0; x<5; x++)
		{
			cout<<"Enter Last Name: ";
			gets(ln);
			*(name+x)=ln;
			cout<<"Enter First Name:";
			gets(fn);
			*(enam+x)=fn;
			cout<<"\n"<<"Enter Grades..."<<endl;
			*(g+x)=0;

			cin.ignore();
						
			lan=ln;
			fin=fn;
			
			wN=lan+","+fin;
			*(name+x)=wN;
			cout<<endl;

			}//end for

		for(x=0; x<5; x++)
		{

			{

			while(ans=='y' || ans=='Y');
}//end main

but i was experimenting and thinking if i could use void functions and do it like this..

#include <iostream>
#include <string>
#include <cstdlib>
#include <iomanip>

void showArray(string [], int);

	int x;
	name= new string [5];
	enam= new string [5];
	g=new double [5];
	EQ=new double[1];
	R=new string[1];

	char ans='N';

	do
	{

but it gives me 19 errors.
can you please help me?

thanks in advance:)

Help with what? 169 lines and not on;ly are we supposed to guess what lines have errors, but we have to guess the errors too?

What's the first question your instructor will ask if all you say is "I have a problem"? Answer the question when you post to save time...

ahh....so many lines...cant handle it...:'(
well for starters..just by looking at it...remove semi-colons in your function in lines 82 and 103..
