I am having trouble with an exercise of finding how many times a number appears in an array and display the value and the count of times it appears in the list. The array can be the size of 100.

Let me be more detailed. I have the program enter a list of numbers all integers and positive. The program then list the numbers in accending order and the number of times that number is in the list. Thanks.

1. put all the numbers in an array and short it.
2. create a 2d array, the first dimension contains the number and the second dimension contains a count of the number of times the number appears. The program will have to iterate through the original array (#1 above) and maintain each array in #2.

c++ <map> will facilitate #2 above, but I'm not familiar enough with it to demonstrate its use.

Well here is what I have so far but the results are not great.
I get repeat info and it prints out -999.
Any ideas?

suggestion: read the 100 numbers from a file instead of entering them from the keyboard.

You don't need variable index.  use listSize instead
while (num != -999)
{
cin >>num;
numbers[index] = num;
index++;
listSize++;
}
}

void selectSort (int numbers[], int listSize)
{
int index, minIndex, smallestIndex, temp;

for (index=0; index < listSize - 1;index++)
{
smallestIndex = index;
for (minIndex = index + 1; minIndex < listSize; minIndex++)
if (numbers[minIndex] < numbers[smallestIndex])
smallestIndex = minIndex;

temp = numbers[smallestIndex];
numbers[smallestIndex] = numbers[index];
numbers[index] = temp;

}
}``````

You have to decrement listSize if you don't want it to print -999. eg

``````cout <<"Enter a maximum of 100 positive integers ending with -999"<<endl;
[b]listSize--;[/b]
cout <<endl;
cout <<fixed<<showpoint<<setw(7)<<"Number"<<setw(9)<<"Count"<<endl;``````

I get repeat info

Show the output.

Or store the numbers in a file and use your OS's redirection capabilities:

``C:\>count_numbers <numbers.txt``

You have to decrement listSize if you don't want it to print -999. eg

``````cout <<"Enter a maximum of 100 positive integers ending with -999"<<endl;
``C:\>count_numbers <numbers.txt``
