C++ hackers anyone?


#include <iostream.h>
using namespace std;

void initVars()
{
char board[9] = {'1', '2', '3', '4', '5', '6', '7', '8', '9'};
}

void displayBoard()
{
cout << " | | " << endl;
cout << " " << board[0] << " | " << board[1] << " | " << board[2] << " " << endl;
cout << "---|---|---" << endl;
cout << " " << board[3] << " | " << board[4] << " | " << board[5] << " " << endl;
cout << "---|---|---" << endl;
cout << " " << board[6] << " | " << board[7] << " | " << board[8] << " " << endl;
cout << " | | " << endl;
}

int main()
{
initVars();
displayBoard();
cin.ignore();
}

You declare a board in InitVars() but don't do anything with it!

In you function main you call InitVars which creates a board array but then returns nothing! (void function). Your function displayBoard() then tries to use an unknown variable board. It either has to be passed to this function, or the board variable must be global.

You should either declare a global board or get you function InitVars to return the initalised board and then do something with it.
