All functions compile except the max function where i am trying to get it to find the maximum number in the matrix. The error message says overloaded function with no contextual type information Please tell me why.

thanks everything compiles now. I have another question I can not make system("PAUSE"); work. In other words how would I put system pause at the end of my code to make it show my results?

system("pause") isn't really a good method to use anyway, as it makes your code non-portable and you're using way more system resources than you need to.

Instead, use the get member function of cin:

cin.get();

I'm always just a little taken aback by things like getch(); and system( "pause" ); stuck in people's code. It is non-portable and in the case of getch() and cin.get(), leaves the input in an indeterminate state. Since the standard input is line bufferered, the most robust code would be something like: while (cin.get() != '\n'); ...which would read and discard anything typed until the ENTER key is pressed.

Even so, IMAO you shouldn't need to put such things in your code... The IDE should be able to do it for you or just run it from the command line as it was designed...

/me puts soapbox away

what? This is my code. It all compiles but I cant get it to show me a result. Does anyone see anything wrong with it. I wrote it myself and I think I did it right but dont know for sure and it is due tomorrow.

Ehem...

Do one of the following:

1. Tell your IDE that you are compiling a console application --it should be smart enough to wait for you to read the console before the window disappears. If it can't do that:

2. Run your program from the command prompt. Or.

3. Use while (cin.get() != '\n'); instead of system().


[EDIT]
Yoinks...

I just tested your code and it works fine for me.

You might want to put a PrintArray() after you GenerateArray() just to see what the generated array was before printing out information.

Also, don't forget spacing and newlines in your output. For example, in sumArray() you should have: cout << "The sum of the matrix is " << sum << endl; And stick that while loop I gave you before the return statement in main().

Hope this helps.

how do i run from command prompt and what is command prompt what is system() and what does

Are you doing this for school or just for your own learning?

You are the one who asked about system("pause"); in your second post. How is it you are writing a command-line application and not know what the command line is or how to access it? Go hit your teacher over the head.

I am doing it for school and yes I would like to hit my teacher over the head. He doesn't teach very well.

:icon_lol: Yeah, a lot of beginning-programming teachers are like that.

Glad to be of help. :icon_cheesygrin:

i cant figure out how to find out how many times the maximum number occurred and my matrices are on top of each other

can i delete this whole thread to protect my code from being viewed by teacher
