Would the reset occur for every case statement? Additionally, if it were reset, then to calculate the average word length, which i used the variable, value, it i run it as is, it shows '4', but thats wrong, so would resetting the value display the incorrect word length. Thx for your response.

I've tried placed the reset in around in the code, and it reverts back to the above, or it shows zero for everything. Thx for your input

Thanx for your input AD, however, i still have a few problems:
1. I'm having problems with the averages of the word length & average word evaluation at the bottom of the code.
2. There are several word that show a value of 1531.06 (at the end), but shouldn't have a value, because none of the specified criteria letters are there.
3.How could i use functions to break it down to do the following:
1 for reading
1 for evaluating
1 for displaying the count
1 for calcualting and displaying the word length average
1 for displaying the word evaluation
Thx much for the assistance.

[edit]The line numbers below refer to your post #33

line 30 is showing the value of total before that value has been calculated. Why don't you move that line down to line 110. And it will show the sum of all values for not only the current sentence (or word actually) but all the words read before it. If you want to show the total for just the word that is being displayed then you will need to use a different variable. Since total is already accumulating the value in all those case statements then maybe create another int and name it something like grandTotal then sum it on line 111 and reset total on line 112. Insert the lines below at line 110.

line 111:  cout<<"Words"<<setw(30)<<"Value"<<endl<<endl;
line 112: grandTotal += total;
line 113: total = 0;

You will also have to change line 115 to use grandTotal instead of total

Thanks for your reply, i get the following error messages though:

error C2065: 'value' : undeclared identifier
error C2065: 'grandTotal' : undeclared identifier

Also, is there really a need to put a default case statement to satisfy if there isn't any of the specified letters indicated?

I get the following as my output. Thx for the point abt the declaration of variable.

Words                         Value

The average word length is : 0
The total # of words from the infile : 58
The average word evaluation is : 0

It doesn't show each individual word their individual value as i want it to. Also, it doesn't show my averages as i wanted to. Thx for your assistance.

Ok, so i pretty much got it. I think...i'll be doing some manually to ensure that the calculation is correct. The problem now is because i reset some of the values...my averages show zero for the averages, that i have to calculate at the bottom. Thx for your input.

int total = 0;......i deleted that one, but i still have problems with the averages.

setw(15) what does this command do ?? and also where have u included the command to input characters from the file ???

are you blind?????????

tonykjose-welcome aboard....however, if you don't know what the comands are for then you may want to read up about them.... But just for simplicity....setw(15) is one way of manipulating the output for formatting, to allow an even width(distance) between your output so it looks clean, such as a column. Your second question...the command to input characters from the file ???.... if you look in my file you'll see the comand (getline(infile,sentence,'\n'))...This website provides great tutorials about the two following questions above. If you have specific questions, please open your own thread and also take a look at our FAQ and forum rules. Happy coding..

Thanks so much guys for the help, however, I'm still having a problem with the average word evaluation. It uses the value from the last word and then divide it by 58(num of words) and outputs that as the average word evaluation. If i use the variable grandTotal and divide it by the num of words....i get zero.

Ok guys...problem solved. Thx for all the input. i'll be posting my code soon, to see how i can break down this program into different programs and then repost it. I have to provide functions for the following:
1 for reading
1 for evaluating
1 for displaying the count
1 for calcualting and displaying the word length average
1 for displaying the word evaluation
Thx much for the assistance.

Actually, if i shifted the printing lines into the while loop..it still shows zero as the answer and the line "The average word evaluation is" prints 50 times because it's inside the help. I'm having a problem with the average evaluation. Thx for your input.

Try this out. It's your code with the various revisions suggested, plus a few comments and one slight simplification. I've not compiled it, though.

Thx Lerner, i've completed the assignment and it works perfectly, i'm now just trying to break it down into the following functions:
1 for reading
1 for evaluating
1 for displaying the count
1 for calcualting and displaying the word length average
1 for displaying the word evaluation

In keeping with the requirements of the program. I need to use the preceeding problem with the use of functions:

1 for calcualting and displaying the word length average
1 for displaying the word evaluation

I'm not doing your debugging for you. Look at the error messages and the line numbers and see if you can't see the problem. The first one is on line 42. Why ? I'll let you figure it out yourself. With 359 posts you should be able to do that.
