my program cant tell who is the winner, how to stop a player than hav put a mark on a mark place and is there anything to change..

my program can work.. but i cant find out the winner instantly..

Um... assuming you have written that code (which looks very neat), it seems odd you can't do some simple debugging. Do what "iamthewee" said.

thanks... im new to C++.. i try every method but still cant find out..

Nope, go away, and put lots of couts in strategic places.

Do they show what you expect, if not why?

When you're done come back and we'll be happy to help.

i tried but still cant... anymore help?

> atoe[0][0] == atoe[0][1] == atoe[0][2]
This line doesn't do what you think it does. The evaluation of this expression is from left to right so the result of the first comparison(between first and second term) is then compared with the third term.

Create a function called 'threeEqual' with something like this:

bool threeEqual(char a, char b, char c)
{
    return((a == b) && (b == c));
}

// and call it in your program as

bool WinVert( char atoe[][3]) //Boolean data type to check for winning rows/column.
{
    return (threeEqual(atoe[0][0],atoe[0][1],atoe[0][2]) ||
            threeEqual(atoe[1][0],atoe[1][1],atoe[1][2]) ||
            threeEqual(atoe[2][0],atoe[2][1],atoe[2][2]));
}

Plus you have interchanged the names of the functions. The one named WinHori should be WinVert and vice a versa.
