can u tell me what the prob is


hello guys ! i have created a program just to understand how to return a value from using a recursive program

what it does it thati have have two variable i.e first and last
the value of first is zero and last is 10

not i want the function to continue until last ==to first
if not it would simply return the value of the last and decrement here is the code and the prob listed and yes i am noob

#include "stdafx.h"
#include <iostream>
# define size 10;
int mergesort(int,int);
using namespace std;

int _tmain(int argc, _TCHAR* argv[])
    int first=0,last=10;

    //cout <<" enter the vlaues";

    //for(int i=0;i<10;i++)
    return 0;

int mergesort(int first,int last,int mid)
{ int a=34343434;
   cout<<"mergesort called";
                cout<<"its the end of the world";

                return a;


 return last;
return first;

here is the prob and plz tell me how to over come it

i created this program in visual c++ 2005


First things first:
Does mergesort() take two or THREE parameters? You have it both ways.


this is not merge sort i was just testing a theory of mine or rather trying to understand it through experiment .
All this programdoes it that it recursivly displays counting in desending form that its


Ok then, now could you please answer thines01's question so we can help you further


oops it takes 2
