converting month number to month name

3
I am using a function prototype to convert month number to month name.
basically you ask the compiler to enter int from 1 to 12 and then convert it.

printMonth ( number ); is the prototype and using switch this is what i did

case 'm':
printf( "What month? Enter a number between 1 and 12: " );
scanf( "%d%c", &number, &tmp );
printMonth( number );
break;
But i just don't know how to call the function . can someone help.

I think the best way you need to use is switch case statement:
here the syntax:
switch(variable_expression){
case constant_value;
{
statement 1;
break;
}
case constant_value;
{
statement 2;
break;
}
statement 3;
break;
}
case constant_value;
{
statement 4;
break;
}

(until 12)
default;
satemen 13
break;
}

printMonth( number ); <<<<<<<this is your call
break;

You just called the function.


What am I missing??

Hi,

Another simple method. Since month names are not going to change, you can create a static array with month names and just index (after checking for bounds) the array with the number.
Now it becomes a simple array index.

So something like the following would work...

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. static char m_months[13][10] = {"", "January", "February", "March", "April", "May", "June", "July", "August", "September", "October", "November", "December"};
  2.     string month(m_months[n]);
  3.  
Where n is the number entered from the user...
