How can I modify this program to change it to a 2D array??

I want it to be a 4x4 array the reads out 1-4 at random with repeating


My current program reads out a 1-10 at random without repeating
Can someone help me modify it?
#include <iostream>
#include <cstdlib>
#include <time.h>
using namespace std;
int main ()
    int A[10];
    srand (time(NULL) );
    int count = 0;
    while (count <10){
    int k = (rand() % 10) + 1;
    bool Placed = false;
    for (int i = 0; (i < count); i++){
    if (A[i] == k){
    Placed = true;
    if (!Placed){
    A[count] = k;
    count ++;

    for (int i=0; i<10; i++)
    cout << A[i] << " ";
    cout << endl;
    return 0;

[Wrong forum]

As this is C++, using static array is not necessary, use Vectors or Lists so you have a the find() function.

As for the 2D static array, a neat trick is to keep your existing code intact (but use 14 as size instead of 10). Then make a new array of size 4 and type int*. Place the newArr[0] = A, newArr[1] = newArr[1] = A+4; and so on. With that, you can have both a continuous and a 2D view of the same dataset. Again, it is a little trick, not something that would work in a pure algorithm point of view. It work because of the way C does static array pointer.
