Having problem with Array  practice excises

Write a function 'identity' which returns a 1 if the array argument passed to it represents an identity matrix, and returns 0 otherwise.

An identity matrix is an m by m array of integers, where the values of the elements on the principle diagonal (row subscript == col subscript)equal 1, and all other elements are 0.

for example:

      1   0   0   0
      0   1   0   0
      0   0   1   0
      0   0   0   1

      is an identity matrix of order 4 by 4,

      1   0   0
      0   1   0
      0   0   1

      is an identity matrix of order 3 by 3,

and
      1   1   5
      0   1   0
      0   0   1

      is NOT an identity matrix.


The function identity is passed two arguments: the array, and the order of the matrix (ie the size of the two dimensions). Thus the prototype of the function would be written as:

int identity (int a[][], int m);

where a is the array and m represents the number of rows and columns.

You may assume that the number of rows always equals the number of
columns
for the array.

We don't do your homework for you.  It's against EE policy.

Have a go, and post your code asking specific questions if you run into problems

I agree with Answer2000 - give it a try yourself and then send in your queries regarding any problems.

cannot be done as you cannot has a function with prototype

int identity (int a[][], int m);

the [][] doesn't work (only the last [...] can be empty
