/***** The prompt i have is : use a class with 3 member functions named InputMatrix, Calculate, and OutMatrix. The program will prompt the user to (e)enter the matrix data, (c) to calculate the matrix multiplication, (d) to display the input and output matrices, and (q) to quit. no exit() or abort() commands are to be used. no global variables allowed.

I have created the Menu for users to enter either e, c, d or q...I have also created the correct functions for input, output and calculation. i am having trouble with how to put all the functions in the menu so the program works like it says in the prompt. thank you for the help.

line # 36 in cpp file, i forgot to put the brackets to open and close the function and corrected it now, still having problems

Sorry guys but i found couple small errors and corrected them so reposting the code here again.

You should probably start by reading the instructions: "use a class with 3 member functions named InputMatrix, Calculate, and OutMatrix. ... no global variables allowed."

You have some problems with your code, but they will be solved if you follow those highlighted instructions. This tutorial might help you.
