Reset function

I need the High scores reset, can you guys let me know how I would do that, my instructions are:

1. Print the high scores list to the screen (it will need to get this from the
High_Scores.txt file, so you'll want tocopy and paste the file into the same folder as Reset.vcproj).

2. Ask the user if they want to reset the high scores list.

3. If the user enters y, reset
the high scores text file to the original scores.

4. If the user says n, the progr
am doesn't have to do anything.

And then the code is below, Im not sure what you needed to help, here is the whole thing. Thank you in advance! I will greatly appreciate your help!

you reset the high score already on line 46 to 73. Just put it in a function like so:
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
10
11
12
13
14
void ResetHighScore(int High_Score[5], string High_Score_Name[5])
{
   // Initialize a high score at 0
   High_Score[4] = 0;
   // Input the high scores from a file
   ifstream Input_High_Scores;
...
   High_Score_Name[0] = "Gwyneth";
   High_Score_Name[1] = "Adam";
   High_Score_Name[2] = "Nastasia";
   High_Score_Name[3] = "Nicolas";
   High_Score_Name[4] = "Dani";
   }
}
and call the function accordingly
Would I want to put the near the end?
Anyone?
Doesn't matter, but make sure you tell the compiler that this is a function called ResetHighScore in advance. (If you're adding it to the end)

//Tells the compiler that you're going to declare this function later on,

void ResetHighScore(int High_Score[5], string High_Score_Name[5]);

// Your current program goes here

void ResetHighScore(int High_Score[5], string High_Score_Name[5])
{
   // Initialize a high score at 0
   High_Score[4] = 0;
   // Input the high scores from a file

   High_Score_Name[1] = "Adam";
   High_Score_Name[2] = "Nastasia";
   High_Score_Name[3] = "Nicolas";
   High_Score_Name[4] = "Dani";
   }
}
