Homework Help: Problems With Calling A Function

  1. Oct 31, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I have to write a function that first prints a list of 6 choices, tells a user to choose one of the six choices using the number 1-6, then either return the number they chose or -99 if they chose a number less than one or greater than 6. Then, I have to call this function and if they chose a number between 1 and 6, report this number, but if they chose outside of the range, print you did not choose a stock.

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I have the function done. I just don't know how to go about calling it. What I have now is:

    if(stockMenu() ==-99)
    cout<<"You did not choose a stock"

    Obviously you can see the problem with this way, as the function runs twice. How can I do this?
