This is my whole program and what I am trying to do. Nothing is being outputted through the functions though. When I output the array in the client code it prints correctly but not through the recursive function. So I am wondering what I am doing incorrectly?

Input is like this: 3 7 9 3 8 2 10 11 4 14
The Sum function adds up from 1 all the way to the last number in the array so the sum of 1+2+3+4+5...+14=105.

Output should look like this:
Array: 3 7 9 3 8 2 10 11 4 14
Array in reverse order:14 4 11 10 2 8 3 9 7 3
SUM of 1-14: 105
3 power of 7: 2187

``````#include "recur.h"
int main()
{
ifstream inFile;
ofstream outFile;
inFile.open("in.data");
outFile.open("out.data");

if(inFile.fail() || outFile.fail())
{
outFile << "Input or Output file ERROR!" << endl;
}

int first;
int last;
int intArray[MAX_SIZE];
int sum;
int x;
int n;
int power;

printArray(intArray, first, last, outFile);
printArrayRev(intArray, first, last, outFile);
outFile << "SUM of 1-10:" << sum << endl;
outFile << x << "power of" << n << ":" << power << endl;

return 0;
}``````
``````//recur.cxx
#include "recur.h"

{
int i;
for(i = 0; i < MAX_SIZE; i++)
{
inFile >> intArray[i];
}
}

int Power(int x, int n)
{
int power;

if(n == 0)
return 1;
else
{
power = (x*Power(x, n-1));
return power;
}
}

void printArray(const int intArray[], int first, int last, ofstream& outFile)
{
outFile << "Array:";
if(first <= last)
{
outFile << intArray[first] << " ";
printArray(intArray, first + 1, last, outFile);
}
}

{
outFile << "Array in reverse order:";
if(last >= first)
{

}
}

int sumOfInt(int n)
{
int sum;

if(n > 0)
{
sum = n + sumOfInt(n-1);
return sum;
}
else return 0;

Thanks for all of your help.

Does it work if you replace `outFile.open("out.data");` with `outFile = cout;` ? With this change you should at least see output to your terminal or IDE output-window.

If you have a problem opening "out.data", your error-statement at line 11 will fail. You can't output an error message to a …

I can't read minds. If you've changed your code, and it still doesn't work for you, please post your current code so we can all see what it looks like now!

I still have not found anything that will work for my program so anything you can find will be very helpful. Thank you again in advance.

If you have a problem opening "out.data", your error-statement at line 11 will fail. You can't output an error message to a stream that you failed to open! Use cout (or better yet, cerr) instead.

Then, after reading your input file, you call printArray with variables `first` and `last` uninitialized. Presumably you'd at least want to hard-code them to 0 and MAX_SIZE-1, although you should be smarter about verifying that you were able to read MAX_SIZE values from your input file.

Alright I tried all of that and it still is not working for me, nothing is being outputted still.

I still have not found out what I am doing wrong so if anyone has any input in to what is causing it not to print out that would be great. Thanks
