I'm trying to make a loop that counts by .8, ie- user enters a starting digit, it takes that number and counts by .8 for a set ammount of times... I have already found one way to do it but im sure there has to be another because this one takes alot of effort, and display variables...

any tips will be appreciated

If you can use float you could do something like:

float lv;
cin>>lv;
for( ; lv<limit; lv+=0.8)
{   //loop code
}

or do you mean

int lIndex;
float lValue;

lValue = //start value

for ( lIndex = 0 ; lIndex < lCount ; lIndex++ , lValue+=0.8)
{
// use lValue here
}

?? What's the problem?

Did either of those answers help?

If so it is time to select one to close the question, and grade it.

If not, perhaps a clarifying question would help.

If that answer is right, don't 'C' grade it. If it isn't, say why. People get annoyed with low grades...
