Computer Information System Program

In summary: Computer( Computer2 ); /* print Computer3 info... */ printComputer( Computer3 ); /* print Computer4 info... */ printComputer( Computer4 ); /* print Computer5 info... */ printComputer( Computer5 ); return 0;}In summary, the programmer created a Computer Information System that will keep up to 50 Computer data. The system will include a computer structure and an array of Computer objects. The program will be able to search for a particular computer by ComputerID and ComputerName, and will also be able to display a list of all computers.

Good day everyone.

I have some problems here. I need help.:confused: This code is my attempt to build a computer program.But, I just found out that I am confuse with my own code.You guys, can check it by your own and please try to fix it.;) Give mesuggestions. If thers's anything wrong then write it to me. There's an image attachment. And, I think I make a lots of mistakes there. I just don't know how to put the right code on right position. Please, tell me the right line of this code. The function,method and arguments. Just tell me . Thank you, so much. And, I also has paste my code here.

Before that, here's the question :

To solve a programming problem by creating a structure which stores information of Computers and to manipulate the structure by using arrays and functions.

A software company has requested you to implement a Computer Information System that will keep up to a maximum of 50 Computer data. The computer’s information to be kept is:
• ComputerID – int
• ComputerName – 50 characters
• ProcessorSpeed – integer
• RAM - Integer
• OperatingSystem – 50 characters
• Price - float

You would need to create a Computer structure and an array called Computers. You are requested to test the Computer Information System developed by performing the tasks b) to e), and display its output.

a)Declare the Computer structure and the Computers array, using the information given above.

b)Insert 5 new computers using a sequential ComputerID

c)Search for a particular computer by ComputerID

d)Search for a particular computer by ComputerName

e)Display a list of all computers Last but not least , this is my program. Not that good right?

Hi Henry R!

Your problem statement says: "You would need to create a Computer structure and an array called Computers."

Currently you have a structure named [m]Computers[/m] that actually contains the information about 1 computer.
So I suggest you change the name to [m]Computer[/m], which would satisfy the first part of the sentence.

You still have to create an array called "Computers".
How would an array be declared? (Wondering)

Furthermore, you have a function:
Code:
int SequentialSearch (int list[], int SearchData)
This function is supposed to search in an array for specific data.
However, for this problem your array (named "list") does not contain integers, but [m]Computer[/m]'s, so perhaps you can change the type [m]int[/m] to [m]Computer[/m] and adjust the function to search for a "ComputerId" in that array? (Wondering)

Can you give website links that I can refer to? Just that. Thanks for helping. I've been searching for good examples. But, I got none of them.

Website of C programming language that stores computer data records. Please,please, please...:eek: There's a lot of website but, you know I couldn't find them.
