Variable being used without initialized?

13 June 2012 - 09:33 PM

Hi there, i'm a total newb with programming and I'm following along in this book. At the end of chapter one it has me write this program and I keep getting an error saying "Adventurers is being used without being initialized. Can someone please help or explain? Thanks

//Lost Fortune
//A Personalizwd adventure

using std::cout;
using std::cin;
using std::endl;
using std::string;

int main()
const int GOLD_PIECES = 900;
int adventurers, killed, survivors;
string leader;

//get the information
cout << "Welcome to Lost Fortune\n\n";
cout << "Please enter the follow for your personalized adventure\n";

cout<<"Enter a number: ";
cin >> killed;

survivors = adventurers - killed;

cout<< "Enter you last name: ";

//tell the story
cout<<"\n A Brave group of"<<adventurers<<"set out on a quest";
cout<<"- in search of the lost treasure of the Ancient Dwarves.";
cout<<"The group was led by that legendary rogue,"<<leader<<".\n";

cout<<"\nAlong the way, a band of marauding ogres ambushed the party.";
cout<<"All fought bracely under the command of"<<leader;
cout<<", and the ogres were defeated but at a cost.";
cout<<"Of the adventurers, "<<killed<<"were vanquished,";
cout<<"leaving just"<<survivors<<"in the group.\n";
cout<<"\nThe party was about to give up all hope.";
cout<<"But while laying the deceased to rest.";
cout<<"they stumbled upon the buried fortune";
cout<<"So the adventurers split"<<GOLD_PIECES<<"gold pieces.";
cout<<leader<<"held on to the extra"<<(GOLD_PIECES % survivors);
cout<<"pieces to keep things fair of course.\n";

return 0;
