Help with a tic tac toe function

1 New Member
This is the program I have written to display 10 tictactoe fields but using 10 strings input by a 2d array. For some reason with mine I'm getting the wrong data output. Could someone take a look at my tttfunction() and tell me if I screwed it up rather badly or not? (I'm struggling my way along through this one).

you have a global variable k but your loop in main() uses a local version

  1.     for (int k = 0; k < 10; k++) { // Will run the tttFunction() 10 times

also your loop in tttFunction()

  4.         tttArray[i] = test[i][k];

  6.         if (i = 10 ) {

  3.         tttArray[i] = test[k][i];// test[i][k];

in general try to avoid using global variables - keeping track of which functions use them and change them is very difficult - pass data into functions using parameters

In the C++ STL, there are various places where you can call a function that takes a functor as a parameter. This functor may be either a function object or a function pointer. For instance, if you have a vector<char> and call for_each on it, both of the methods below would be valid: #include <iostream> #include <vector> using namespace std; struct MyFunctionObject

I am yet again confused about the process of overload resolution. Can anyone kindly explain why the function #2 is selected over #1 when passed 'char'? When passed 'const char', the compiler complains of ambiguity as I expected. I was expecting to hear the same complaint when passing 'char' because I thought both required 'const qualification', but my compiler (gcc 3.4.2) calls function #2.
