### Code doesent work

hi again,

since i got such a nice and fast answer yesterday i want to ask you again about a new program i wrote. its task is simply to put out all prime numbers {2, ..., n -1} and i can compile it without errors. also the computation works for almost all n's but for some (a.e. 100) it gives me out the prime numbers first and then puts out some errors.

"; int n; std::cin >> n; std::cout << "Components k =? "; // computation bool* prime = new bool[n]; int quantity_prime_numbers = 0; int* prime_numbers = new int[n]; for (int i = 0; i < n; ++i) { prime[i] = true; } for (int i = 2; i <= n; ++i) { if (prime[i] == true) { prime_numbers[quantity_prime_numbers] = i; ++quantity_prime_numbers; } for (int j = 2 * i; j <= n; j += i) { prime[j] = false; } } // output for (int i = 0; i < quantity_prime_numbers; ++i) { std::cout << prime_numbers[i] << " "; } std::cout << std::endl; delete[] prime; delete[] prime_numbers; return 0; }

could anybody please help me and tell me what my mistake is? i am just trying to learn how to use arrays...

thank you,

@sinnex

You're going out of range with the loops using the <=. Remove them from lines 19 and 24, and things should work a LOT better
You are stepping out of bounds of the array.
The index should go from 0 to n-1
Seems like you have a memory leak in your program, i took your code and ran it on my schools windowsXP computer with codeblocks and everything works fine. What compiler do you use?
@ ne555, whitenite1

ah, of course!! thanks to both for your fast replies!

@ need4sleep

actually what they said helped. i just used one undefined space of my array... after deleting the "<=" it worked... i used the g++ compiler on linux...
