Text adventure game

Hello I need help with a text adventure game but the code is to long to put here, how can I get around that to post it to get help?
Is it necessary to post the entire code? What is the specific problem you are having?
Chances are that the whole code is not wrong. Only a small portion of your code is probably wrong.

Save a copy of your code, and then work on shaving down your code so that you can get rid of every thing that is not related to the bug -- i.e. produce the smallest, most straight-forward program you can that still reproduces the bug. This is a vital technique to debugging that will often cause you to find the bug, but at the very least make it easier for others to debug.

Hello I'm trying to make it to where there are choices and when you make one it will take you to the correct function in order for the code to run. However I can't find a way to make it where I don't get an error of undeclared function regardless of how i order it. Please help, note this is not the full code.

I think you may want to look at function prototyping...

http://www.cplusplus.com/articles/yAqpX9L8/
So all I need to do is declare it at the beginning and it will go find it? Just clarifying.

#include <iostream>
// prototype your functions
void myfun1();
void myfun2();
void myfunc3();

int main()
{
   ...
   return 0;
}

// define your functions here, or anywhere as long as it's not above the function
// prototypes, and they can be called pretty much anywhere in the program.

So yeah, pretty much. Declare it as a prototype, and you can call it whenever.
