  • 1. Lecture 10 Arrays, Functions & StructuresTCP1231 Computer Programming I 1
  • 2. Objectives• To Learn about functions and arrays• Explore how to declare and manipulate arrays with functions• Explore how to declare and manipulate structures with functions• Become familiar with functions, arrays, and structures. TCP1231 Computer Programming I 2
  • 3. Functions – Revisited (User Defined Function)• Two components of a function definition• Function declaration (or function prototype) – Shows how the function is called – Must appear in the code before the function can be called – Syntax: Type_returned Function_Name(Parameter_List); //Comment describing what function does TCP1231 Computer Programming I 3
  • 4. Functions – Revisited (User Defined Function)• Function definition – Describes how the function does its task – Can appear before or after the function is called – Syntax: Type_returned Function_Name(Parameter_List) { //code to make the function work } TCP1231 Computer Programming I 4
  • 5. #include <iostream>using namespace std; int p(int x, int n) { int temp=1;int p(int x, int n); Function for (int i=1; i <= n; i++) Functionint f(int x); declaration temp= temp * x; definition return temp;int main() { } int no, x, n; cout << "Enter a number==> "; int f(int x) { cin >> no; int temp=1; cout << "factorial = "<<f(no); for (int i=1; i <= x; i++) cout << "nnEnter number 1==> "; temp= temp * i; cin >> x; return temp; cout << "Enter number 2==> "; } cin >> n; cout << "power = "<<p(x,n); system(“PAUSE”); return 0; Function call} TCP1231 Computer Programming I 5
  • 6. Structure and Function Calls• Structure definition is generally placed outside any function definition – This makes the structure type available to all code that follows the structure definition• To declare two variables of type CDAccount: CDAccount my_account, your_account; – My_account and your_account contain distinct member variables balance, interest_rate, and term TCP1231 Computer Programming I 6
  • 7. Structures as Arguments• Structures can be arguments in function calls – The formal parameter can be call-by-value – The formal parameter can be call-by-reference• Example: void get_data(CDAccount& the_account); – Uses the structure type CDAccount as the type for a call-by-reference parameter TCP1231 Computer Programming I 7
  • 8. A Structure Definition//Program to demonstrate the CDAccount structure type.#include <iostream>using namespace std;//Structure for a bank certificate of deposit:struct CDAccount{ double balance; double interest_rate; int term; //months until maturity}; Function declaration: To receive struct CDAccount asvoid get_data(CDAccount& the_account); argument//Postcondition: the_account.balance and the_account.interest_rate//have been given values that the user entered at the keyboard. TCP1231 Computer Programming I 8
  • 9. int main( ){ CDAccount account; Function calling : get_data(account); Send account as get_data argument double rate_fraction, interest; rate_fraction = account.interest_rate / 100.0; interest = account.balance * rate_fraction * (account.term / 12.0); account.balance = account.balance + interest; cout.setf(ios::fixed); cout.setf(ios::showpoint); cout.precision(2); cout << "When your CD matures in " << account.term << " months,n" << "it will have a balance of $" << account.balance << endl; return 0;} TCP1231 Computer Programming I 9
  • 10. void get_data(CDAccount& the_account){ cout << "Enter account balance: $"; cin >> the_account.balance; cout << "Enter account interest rate: "; Function definition : Manipulating cin >> the_account.interest_rate; the_account inside cout << "Enter the number of months until get_data implementation maturityn“ << "(must be 12 or fewer months): "; cin >> the_account.term;} Enter account balance: $100.00 Sample Output: Enter account interest rate: 10.0 Output: Enter the number of months until maturity(must be 12 or fewer months): 6 When your CD matures in 6 months, it will have a balance of $105.00 TCP1231 Computer Programming I 10
  • 11. Structures as Return Types• Structures can be the type of a value returned by a function students reading(){• Example: students rec; cout << "nEnter the student name ==> "; getline(cin,; cout << "Enter the student ID ==> "; cin >>; cout << "Enter the student Mark ==> "; cin >> rec.mark; cin.ignore(); return rec; } TCP1231 Computer Programming I 11
  • 12. #include <iostream> To read info about three studentsusing namespace std; void printing(students rec) {struct students{ cout << "nThe student name: "; string name; cout <<; int id; cout << "nThe student ID: "; double mark; cout <<;}; cout << "nThe student mark: ";students reading() cout << rec.mark;{ } students rec; int main() { cout << "nEnter the student name ==> "; int i; getline(cin,; students info[3]; cout << "Enter the student ID ==> "; for (i=0; i<=2; i++) cin >>; info[i]=reading() ; cout << "Enter the student Mark ==> "; cin >> rec.mark; for (i=0; i<=2; i++) cin.ignore(); printing(info[i]); return rec;} return 0; TCP1231 Computer Programming I } 12
  • 13. Arrays in Function• Indexed variables can be arguments to functions – Example: If a program contains these declarations: int i, n, a[10]; void my_function(int n); Variables a[0] through a[9] are of type int, making these calls legal: my_function( a[ 0 ] ); my_function( a[ 3 ] ); my_function( a[ i ] ); TCP1231 Computer Programming I 13
  • 14. Array as Function Arguments• A formal parameter can be for an entire array – Such a parameter is called an array parameter • It is not a call-by-value parameter • It is not a call-by-reference parameter • Array parameters behave much like call-by- reference parameters TCP1231 Computer Programming I 14
  • 15. Array Parameter Declaration• An array parameter is indicated using empty brackets in the parameter list such as void fill_up(int a[ ], int size); TCP1231 Computer Programming I 15
  • 16. Function with an Array Parameter#include<iostream>using namespace std; Function declaration: To receive an array ofvoid fill_up(int a[], int size); int, a[] as//Precondition: size is the declared size of the array a. argument// The user will type in size integers.//Postcondition: The array a is filled with size integers// from the keyboard.void fill_up(int a[], int size){ cout << "Enter " << size << " numbers:n"; for (int i = 0; i < size; i++) Function definition : Manipulating a[] cin >> a[i]; inside fill_up size--; implementation cout << "The last array index used is " << size << endl;} TCP1231 Computer Programming I 16
  • 17. Function calls with array• If function fill_up is declared in this way: void fill_up(int a[ ], int size); and array score is declared this way: int score[5], number_of_scores; fill_up is called in this way: fill_up(score, number_of_scores); TCP1231 Computer Programming I 17
  • 18. Function call details• A formal parameter is identified as an array parameter by the [ ]s with no index expression void fill_up(int a[ ], int size);• An array argument does not use the [ ]s fill_up(score, number_of_scores); TCP1231 Computer Programming I 18
  • 19. Array Formal Parameters• An array formal parameter is a placeholder for the argument – When an array is an argument in a function call, an action performed on the array parameter is performed on the array argument – The values of the indexed variables can be changed by the function TCP1231 Computer Programming I 19
  • 20. Array Parameter Considerations• Because a function does not know the size of an array argument… – The programmer should include a formal parameter that specifies the size of the array – The function can process arrays of various sizes • Function fill_up can be used to fill an array of any size: fill_up(score, 5); fill_up(time, 10); TCP1231 Computer Programming I 20
  • 21. Returning An Array• Recall that functions can return a value of type int, double, char, …, or a class type• Functions cannot return arrays• We learn later how to return a pointer to an array TCP1231 Computer Programming I 21
  • 22. #include <iostream> To read 9 numbersusing namespace std;void ReadArray(int arr[] ) { int i; int main() { for (i=0; i < 9; i++) int i; { cout << "a["<<i<<"]="; int a[9]; cin >> arr[i]; } ReadArray(a);} for (i=0; i < 9; i++) cout << a[i] << t; system(“pause”); return 0; } TCP1231 Computer Programming I 22
  • 23. #include <iostream> To read 9 numbers, then sortusing namespace std; them in ascending ordervoid ReadArray(int arr[] ) { int main() { int i; int i; for (i=0; i < 9; i++) int a[9]; { cout << "a["<<i<<"]="; cin >> arr[i]; ReadArray(a); }} for (i=0; i < 9; i++)// Bubble sort cout << a[i] << t;void sorting(int arr[] ) { cout << endl; int i, j, temp; for (i=0; i < 9; i++) sorting(a); for (j=0; j < 8; j++) if (arr[j] > arr[j+1]) for (i=0; i < 9; i++) { temp= arr[j]; cout << a[i] << t; arr[j]= arr[j+1]; arr[j+1]= temp; system(“pause”); } return 0;} } TCP1231 Computer Programming I 23
  • 24. Functions and Multidimensional Array• When a one-dimensional array is defined as a formal parameter, the size of the array may be omittedvoid Fun(float list[], int size) { . . . } TCP1231 Computer Programming I 24
  • 25. Multi Dimensional Array as Parameter• With two-dimensional arrays, the first dimension (number of rows) may be omitted, but not the second dimension (number of columns). void Fun(float table[ ][5], int rows, int cols){ . . . }• You can specify both dimensions if you choose to. void Fun(float table[2][5], int rows, int cols){ . . . } TCP1231 Computer Programming I 25
  • 26. #include <iostream>using namespace std;const int row=3; To two dimensional arrayconst int col=4; then display its elementsvoid Read2Array(int arr[][col] ) { int i,j; for (i=0; i<row; i++) for ( j=0; j<col; j++) cin >> arr[i][j]; int main ()} { int a[row][col];void writing(int arr[][col]) { int i,j; Read2Array(a); for (i=0; i<row; i++) writing(a); { for ( j=0; j<col; j++) system(“pause”); cout << arr[i][j] << t; return 0; cout << endl; } }} TCP1231 Computer Programming I 26
  • 27. #include <iostream> To multiply two arraysusing namespace std;void multi(int a[][3], int b[][4], int c[][4]) { int main () { int i, j, k; int x[3][3]= {{12, 4, 9}, { -5, 3, for (i=0; i<3; i++) 1}, { 9, 2, -2}}; for ( j=0; j<4; j++) { int y[3][4]= {{11, 1, 12, 1},{ 2, c[i][j]=0; 24, 32, 4}, {63, -3, 3, 4}} ; for ( k=0; k<3; k++) c[i][j]= c[i][j] + a[i][k] * b[k][j]; int z[3][4]; }} multi(x, y, z);void writing(int arr[][4]) { writing(z); for (int i=0; i<3; i++) { system(“pause”); for ( int j=0; j<4; j++) return 0; cout << arr[i][j] << t; } cout << endl; }} TCP1231 Computer Programming I 27
