If i alter the program, by placing the counters after the braces...then it tells me that my if/else statements aren't ok.

0

I've placed the counters after the loop...it pretty much prints four zeros, because that was the initial value being declared for them. How can I fix that?

My latrest Code:

#include<fstream>

#include<iostream>
#include<cmath>

using namespace std;




int main()
{

int stunum;//# of students in the class
string stuname;// Name of the student
int Test1;//score for test 1
int Test2;//score for test 2
int Midterm;//score for midterm
int Final;//score for final
int Term;//score for term project
int NumA = 0;//# of A's
int NumB = 0;//# of B's
int NumC = 0;//# of C's
int NumF = 0;//# of F's

ifstream inFile;
ofstream outFile;

inFile.open ("ClassData.dat");
outFile.open ("ClassOutput");
while (inFile>>stuname>>Test1>>Test2>>Midterm>>Final>>Term)//variables for student info

{
int gradeAvg= Test1 + Test2 + Midterm + Final + Term; 
if(gradeAvg>=90)
{
outFile<<stuname<<setw(5)<<gradeAvg<<setw(5)<<"A"<<endl;
}

else if (gradeAvg>=80)
{
outFile<<stuname<<setw(5)<<gradeAvg<<setw(5)<<"B"<<endl;
}

else if (gradeAvg>=70)
{
outFile<<stuname<<setw(5)<<gradeAvg<<setw(5)<<"C"<<endl;
}

else if (gradeAvg<70)
{
outFile<<stuname<<setw(5)<<gradeAvg<<setw(5)<<"F"<<endl;
}

}
outFile<<NumF++;
outFile<<NumC++;
outFile<<NumB++;
outFile<<NumA++;




inFile.close();
outFile.close();

return 0;

}

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This program prints four zeros. Also, if i wanted it to print the number of students in the class, I'd have to include '10' in my inFile correct?

0

Oh dear....

> NumF++;
Put these at appropriate places inside the if statements.

> cout << NumF;
Put these outside (and after) the while loop has finished.

:-O :$ ....thanks for the help....simple mistake...will be posting an array's question in a few days.

0

where in my inFile can I put '10', number of students to have the outFile say: There are 10 students in the class'. I tried placed it there, but it messed up my if/else statements.

My inFile is as follows:
10
Gayle 10 8 22 16 22

My source code is as follows:
#include<fstream>

#include<iomanip>

#include<string>

#include<iostream>

#include<cmath>

using namespace std;







int main()

{


int stunum;//# of students in the class

ifstream inFile;

ofstream outFile;

inFile.open ("ClassData.dat");

outFile.open ("ClassOutput");

while (inFile>>stunum>>stuname>>Test1>>Test2>>Midterm>>Final>>Term)//variables for student info

int gradeAvg= Test1 + Test2 + Midterm + Final + Term;

inFile.close();

outFile.close();

return 0;

}

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I can't see what's the problem....the output file comes out like this:

Gayle   78    C
A's= 0
B's= 0
C's= 1
F's= 0

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

However, when i remove the variable 'stunum' from my source code-it works perfectly. I presume it's to do with my inFile.

Thanks for your assistance.

> outFile<<"A's="<<setw(2)<<NumA++<<endl;
There's no need for the ++ on this line (think about it).

0

You are correct, just figured it out. Thx, but by any chance did you see why i am not able to read the number of students in the class from the inFile and place it into the outFile? Thanx.

0

the read for that new line I added to the inFile, while (inFile>>stunum>>stuname>>Test1>>Test2>>Midterm>>Final>>Term)-with 'stunum' being the variable used for the number of students.

Maybe

inFile >> stunum; // Only one of these, at the start
while (inFile>>stuname>>Test1>>Test2>>Midterm>>Final>>Term)

> i tought i had placed my source-code in the Code Tags
That's what "preview post" is for, to make sure you did it right.
It looks like the code tags where there, but your most recent post was devoid of any indentation. Picky I know, but coders like to see both in posted code, since it is the most efficient for us to read and figure out what is going on.

I forgot to do an outFile(output for stunum).....silly of me.....thanks for all the assistance....it's really appreciated.......will be posting an array question on monday and will be sure to have the formatting correct....thanks once again.

0

Out of curiosity...how could I design this same program using appropriate functions? Also....let us say that in addition I wanted to print out from the inFile, each of the student's individual test grade...why would it be a redundant code to have this after each if else statement? Also, how could i use a for loop to read the number of students from my inFile(which is on the first line of the inFile):

else if ( gradeAvg < 70 )
{
outFile << stuname << setw ( 5 ) << gradeAvg
<< setw ( 5 ) << "F" << endl;
NumF++;

If i put that each time for each student...why is it redundant.... Is there a way to have only one long-output statement and then print the letter grade separately? Thanks for the assistance...

look at lines 31 and 33 -- delete that semicolon at the end of those two lines.

>>If I were to do the following, why does it only show the information for Kenez from my inFile?
Only displaying the last line of the file because of the problem with the semicolon on line 33.

You really start to be more careful about where you place those semicolons.

0

> If I were to do the following, why does it only show the information for Kenez from my inFile?

> for (int j=0; j<stunum; j++);
Watch the ; at the end, this means DO NOTHING a number of times.

> while (inFile>>stuname>>Test1>>Test2>>Midterm>>Final>>Term);
Watch the ; at the end, this means read the whole file, but DO NOTHING with any of the data.

The result being that what you end up with eventually, is just the last line of the file.

0

Thanx....however, after I remove the semi-colon, I receive an error message:

error C2143: syntax error : missing ';'before '}'

That's what i get after compiling the program(it shows up as an error for line 33).

Interesting....our professor didn't point out that was what the semicolons do......i owe youo guys big for that tip!!

I agree that's the semicolon causing the problem, see below my new code.... and I have two problems:
Why does it only print the profile for "Kenez" from my inFile? Secondly, in my outFile, it only print's out data for "Kenez" and it places the "Letter Grade", for Kenez in a separate line? Below are my inFile & outFile.

Thanks for the assistance:

If I were to do the following, why does it only show the information for Kenez from my inFile?

for (int j=0; j<stunum; j++)
    while (inFile>>stuname>>Test1>>Test2>>Midterm>>Final>>Term);

That line keeps overwriting the values. In the end it is left with only the last values
