news:7Ujec.78302$Pk3.72421@pd7tw1no... How can you write a program in C++ by using loop to control the

calculation without the use of library function pwr .For example 3 to the power of 4

(ie 3x3x3x3). Any help will be appreciated

#include <iostream>

unsigned int pwr(unsigned int base, unsigned int exp)

{

unsigned int result = 1;

while(exp--)

result *= base;

return result;

}

int main()

{

std::cout << pwr(3, 4) << '\n';

return 0;

}
