I need some help with this...it is work for school and i am stuck...the idea is a nested while loop.  This is what i got so far (it isnt much)

// Borland Turbo C++ for Windows 4.5 (In Windows95 operating system)

// [42 days monat]
// calender making program
// user puts in how many days in month, and user puts in what is the first
// day of this week, (if sunday = day 1, etc.)
// main idea: to utilize a nested loop (while or for)

/*

NESTED-A-ROONY WHILE OR FOR-A-ROO LOOP-A-DOO LABS

*/

#include <iomanip.h>
#include <iostream.h>

int main()

{
int days, week, row, col;
cout << "How many days are in this month: ";
cin >> days;
char choice;
cout << "\nSunday\nMonday\nTuesday\nWednesday\ntHursday\nFriday\nsAturday\n\n";
// comment for next line, input must be capital as well
cout << "What is the first day of the month??\n\nPlease choose the capitalized lettter.  Thank you.\n\n>> ";
cin >> choice;

cout <<"\nSu Mo Tu We Th Fr Sa\n";

switch (choice)

{
case 'S' :
{
cout << setw(2);
for (int i=1; i<=7; i++)
cout << i << setw(3);
break;
}

case 'M' :

{
cout << setw(5);
for (int i=1; i<=6; i++)
cout << i << setw(3);
break;
}

case 'T' :
{
// s m t w t f s
// - - 1 2 3 4 5
cout << setw(8);
for (int i=1; i<=5; i++)
cout << i << setw(3);

for (week = row; week <= days; ++ week)
{
cout << week;
if (week % 7 == 5)
cout << endl;
}
break;
}

case 'W' :
{

cout << setw(11);
for (int i=1; i<=4; i++)
cout << i << setw(3);

break;
}

case 'H' :
{
cout << setw(14);
for (int i=1; i<=3; i++)
cout << i << setw(3);

break;
}

case 'F' :
{
cout << setw(17);
for (int i=1; i<=2; i++)
cout << i << setw(3);

break;
}

case 'A' :
{
cout << setw(20);
for (int i=1; i<=1; i++)
cout << i << setw(3);

break;
}

default : cout << "Du bist ein Blödkopf!  Inputten ein validen Karaktörnen";
}
return 0;
}

I think there are 2 main problems in your program.
1. Only display the first week. I think this is not your wanted.
2. case 'T' :
{
// s m t w t f s
// - - 1 2 3 4 5
cout << setw(8);
for (int i=1; i<=5; i++)
cout << i << setw(3);

->    for (week = row; week <= days; ++ week)
->    {
->      cout << week;
->      if (week % 7 == 5)
->    cout << endl;
->    }
break;
}

What does 'for (week ..)' mean ? Why only in "case 'T'"?

If you want to display the all days of the month, please modify it like this.
1. main( )
{
int i;    // add define i, I need it to display the remain  days

2. delete 'int' in the 'for' statement( in EACH 'case') , because need the value of i after the 'for' statement.
for ( int i=i; i<=....)
^^^
|___ Delete it!

3. Delete 'for (week = row; week <= days; ++ week) {...}'. It does NOT work, because did not initialize the 'row'.

4. Add these lines as below before the ' return 0;'

cout << setw(2);  // Do as you did
// Print the date for 'i'
for ( week=i, col=1; week<=days; week++, col++) {
cout << week << setw(3);
if ( col%7 == 0 ) { // Is it Saturday ?
cout << endl;     // Yes
if ( j < 9 )      // Only want to display it as you did.
cout << setw(2);
}
}
return 0;            // This is your line.

Is it OK?

i am rejecting this for now...it is a stupid computer assignment for school...we were given a week and that is a weeks work for me...i dont get C++.   Case 'T' was the first day of the lab...the loop there was my teachers suggestion.  I just need a nested while loop for the program requirements.  this is what he wants, asking, How many days in this month, and what day is the day #1.  It will then display a table of numbers.  (this is a mock calender, nothing useful, just for a grade.)  I am stuck and would like to know if you are willing to make this program and send me the source code and if possible the compiled exe file to me via email at jwnrb@cybernex.net.  Thank you.

thank you.  i will give you 25 bonus points for being very efficent....it works well.  (i was hoping for the printing part to be a nested while, but for would work as well, thanks!)
