class mesh{
	vector<int> vertices;
	int inplus;
	mesh() { inplus = 0; }

int data[10][5];
void split(int total_rows, int total_columns, int wanted_rows, int wanted_columns){
	//create the right amount of meshes
	int req_meshes = (total_rows * total_columns) / (wanted_rows * wanted_columns);
	int r = req_meshes;
	while (req_meshes){
		mesh temp;
	int index = 0;

	for (int i = 0; i < total_rows; i++){
		index = 0;
		for (int w = 0; w < total_columns; w+= total_columns/wanted_columns){
			if (w != 0){
				meshes.at(index).vertices.push_back(data[i][w - 1]);
			for (int es = 0; es <= total_columns / wanted_columns; es++){
				meshes.at(index).vertices.push_back(data[i][w + es]);


			if (meshes.at(index).vertices.size() == wanted_columns * wanted_rows + meshes.at(index).inplus){

				for (int r = 0; r < wanted_columns + 1; r++){
					if (i != 0){
						meshes.at(index).vertices.push_back(data[i - wanted_rows][(w - (wanted_columns + 1)) + r]);
				for (int za = 0; za < meshes.at(index).vertices.size(); za++)
					cout << meshes.at(index).vertices.at(za);
				cout << endl;

				if (index >= r)
					index = 0;




What I'm trying to do: split a big mesh into smaller ones that fit it entirely.However...i can't manage to get anything good out of it....what's wrong?

  • Variable data is uninitialized, but you read from it.
  • Variable data has an arbitrary size.
  • You don't read from the input mesh, and you don't return the newly created ones. You should probably return a collection of meshes from a method of the mesh class.
  • There doesn't seem to be any connectivity information in your meshes, only a bunch of vertices; and the vertices are ints, not anything resembling a point. Can you explain how the meshes should work?
  • Why do you want to split meshes in the first place?
