I need help fixing this one error with my code. Below Im going to upload a piece of the code which im having problems with and the output error .

int main()
{

int vals[100];
fstream file;
 






string line =   "----------------------------------------------------\n";
string msg2 =   " Please select an option from the above menu --> ";
string menu1 =  " [0]    Quit \n"
	" [1]    Generate Rand Array \n"
	" [2]    Save Array to File \n"
	" [3]    Load Array from File \n"
	" [4]    Search Array \n"
	" [5]    Compute CPU Time \n"
	" [6]	 Display Generated numbers \n"
	" [7]    Sorted Search \n"
	" [8]	 lkj \n";


int sz;
int max_range= 100;
int min_range= 0;
ofstream fout;
ifstream fin;
int idx;
int val;
long t0, t1;
int op = -1;


while( op != 0)
{
	cout << menu1;
	cout << msg2 << endl;
	cin >> op;
	cout << line << endl;




	switch( op )
	{


	case 0: exit(0); break;


	case 1:
		int sz;
		cout << " Please enter size of the array (sz <= 100) --> ";
		cin >> sz;


		if(sz > 1000){ //MAX_SZ
			cout << " The size you entered is not allowed ...\n";
			exit(0);
		}
		else{
			int max_range = 100;
			int min_range = 0;
			for( int i=0; i<sz; ++i){ 
				vals[i] = min_range +  rand() % max_range;


			}
		}
		break;


	case 2: 




		float n1, n2;


		fout.open("fout.txt");


		for( int i=0; i<sz; ++i)
		{
			fout << vals[i] << endl;
		}


		fout.close();
		break;










	case 3:
		fin.open("fout.txt");
		idx = 0;
		while(fin){
			fin >> vals[idx];
			++idx;
		}


		sz = idx;
		fin.close();
		break;
	case 4:
		cout << " Please enter the value you are looking for --->";
		cin >> val;
		idx = LinearSearchArray(vals, sz, val);
		if( idx > -1)
			cout << " The val (" << val << ") was found at index (" << idx << ") \n\n";
		else 
			cout << " The Val (" << val << ") was not found \n\n" ;


		cout << "CPU time was" << t1-t0 << "ms\n\n"; 




	case 5:
		


		idx = LinearSearchArray(vals, sz, val);


		 t1 = clock();


		cout << "running time in ms = " << t1-t0 << "\n";


	case 6:
		for(int i=0; i<sz; ++i)
		{
			cout <<  vals[i] << endl;
		}
		break;

	case 7:
		void selectionSort( int array[], int size)
		{
			int startScan, minIndex, minValue;

			for(startScan = 0; startScan < (size = 1); startScan++)
			{
				minIndex = startScan;
				minValue = array[startScan];
				for(int index = startScan + 1; index < size; index++)
				{
					if ( array[index] < minValue)
					{
						minValue = array[index];
						minIndex = index;
					}
				}
				array[minIndex] = array[startScan];
				array[startScan] = minValue;
			}
		}

	default: cout << "Invalid option...Please try again \n\n";
		

	}  


} 
	


return 0;
}

ERRORS:
12hw1.cpp(174): error C2601: 'selectionSort' : local function definitions are illegal
12hw1.cpp(62): this line contains a '{' which has not yet been matched

The error says it all: regular functions cannot be nested in C++. Move your definition of selectionSort() outside of main() and call it in case 7 instead.

O ok thanks, I get it now and moved it outside of main and it runs now. Once again thanks
