    odd error?

    Before you yell at me for bad variable names, this is just one random practice assignment in school >_>

    Okay here is the code:

    #include "stdafx.h"

    #include <iostream>
    #include <iomanip>
    using namespace std;

    void main()
    int x[100];
    int y,z,l;
    float sum,avg; // y is for the first loop, z count the amount of numbers, l is the second loop, sum is the sum
    char quit; // are you quiting or not

    for (y=1;y<=100;y++) {


    for (y=1;y<=100;y++) {
    cout << "Enter a number: ";
    cin >> x[y];
    cout << endl << "Was that the last number? (y for YES): ";
    cin >> quit;
    if (quit=='y' || quit=='Y')

    sum = 0;

    for (l=1;l<=z;l++) {
    sum = sum + x[l];

    avg = sum / z;

    cout << endl;
    cout << "You entered " << z << " integers";
    cout << endl << sum << " is the sum";
    cout << endl << avg << " is the average";

    cout << endl;
    system ("pause");

    Now here is my problem. It works, so I'm not super worried, but it keeps saying the stack around variable x is corrupted after the program ran. I don't know why, and the teacher said he's never seen that before. Any ideas? Was I using the variables wrong or something?

    Yet again, sorry for the bad variable names

    Isn't this a Windows program?
    Make mine Arch Linux

    You have declared variable x of size 100
    and using the variable from 1 to 100, plz note index starts from 0 to 99 only
    change the index from 1-100 to 0 - 99 it should work

    I'm working in windows right now simply because I'm at school.

    Would it be different if I was in Ubuntu? I use Ubuntu at home and Java seems to be the same

    In linux it works well when the memory is alloted for you. When you are accessing any location is out of your memory location. It gives you a segmentation fault.
    I think in your small program it should not create any problem.
