I have an array that was read in under int main()
and it read in 25 integers into an array called src
I have to copy this array into one called dst
I tried to do this:

void copyArray(const int src[], int dst[], int sz0{
     for(int i=0; i < sz; i++){
         dst[i]=src[i];
     }//for loop ends here

Why doesn't this work?  What do I need to do!  This is something I need answered today if possible!  Any help would be appreciated very much!

It should be sz

my code is as follows:

#include <iostream.h>
#include <fstream.h>
#include <stlib.h>

void copyArray(const int src[], int dst[], int sz);
void printArray(const int A[], int sz, int nPerLine);

int main(){
   ifstream inFile;
   inFile.open("dataFile");
   
if(inFile.fail()){
   cout << "opening failed.  Exiting...\n";
   exit(1);
}

int src[25], dst[25], i , sz=0, A[25], nPerLine;
while(sz<25){
   inFile >> src[i];
   cout << "src[" << sz << "]=" << src[i] << endl;
   sz++;
}//while loop end

copyArray(src, dst, sz);
printArray(A, sz, nPerLine);

}//main

void copyArray(const int src[], int dst[], int sz){
   for(int i=0; i<sz, i++){
       dst[i]=src[i];
       cout << "dst[" << i << "]=" << dst[i] << "  ";
       cout << "src[" << i << "]=" << src[i] << endl;
   }//for loop
}//copyArray
void printArray(const int A[], int sz, int nPerline){
   cout << "enter # array elements to print per line: ";
   cin >> nPerLine;
   for(int j-0; j<nPerLine; j++){
      cout << "A[" << j << "]=" << A[j] << " ";
      if(j==nPerLine){
          cout << endl;
      }//if
   }//for
}//printArray


It reads in everything fine in main.

The output from main is corect.

Then when it gets to void copyArray, the output for dst[0] and src[0] are both 9, which is the last # read in from the file. (ie dst[24] and src[24] both are 9.
All others are 0.  

Where did I go wrong???

I would do this

while (!input.eof())
{
   src=input.getline(sourcefile);
   strcpy(dst, src, howevermany.)
   
}
just a suggestion.
