Changing char statuses.

Hello, to explain my problem, I shall use an example. Say the user enters 3 islands with populations of only 5, 4, and 3 people. They put in 2 for the total infected. I would like for the code to display the first two people in each island with an 'i' for their status while the rest stay 'h' as in healthy.

Right now, this code displays
h 1
h 1
h 1
h 1
h 1
h 2
h 2
h 2
h 2
h 3
h 3
h 3

The first two people in each island should be changed to 'i'. So it should look like this.

i 1
i 1
h 1
h 1
h 1
i 2
i 2
h 2
h 2
i 3
i 3
h 3

Any help is appreciated.

use it, or std::list if you prefer
not going to debug yet another not invented here implimentation

funny, I've got
1 h
having to guess a lot of input.

> 2 for the total infected. (...) the first two people in each island
so total doesn't mean total


about your code, 239 lines and not a single comment. ¿what I'm suppossed to look at?

> Island island_catalog;
wait, ¿what does an Island represent?
because it seems that you treat Island as a collection of islands.
