using abs () to find difference but cann't .....

What I have tried:

C++
#include <iostream>

#include<cmath>
#include<limits.h>
#include<stdio.h>
#include<algorithm>
#include<stdlib.h>


using namespace std;

int main()
{

    long int n=0;
    long int a[n];
    long int value;
    cin>>n;
    for(int i=0; i<n;>    {
        cin>>a[i];
    }
    cin>>value;
    cout<<endl;
    int temp=0,temp2=0;
    float diff=0.0,diff2=0.0;
    for(int i=0; i<n;>    {
        temp=a[i];

        for(int j=i+1; j<n;>        {
            if(i==0)
            {
                if(temp+a[j]==value)
                {
                    temp2=a[j];
                    diff=temp2-temp;
                         diff=abs(diff);
                    cout<<"temp="<<temp<<"temp2="<<temp2<<"diff="<<diff<<endl;
                }
            }


            else
            {
                if(temp+a[j]==value)
                {
                    temp2=a[j];
                    diff2=temp2-temp;
                    diff2=abs(diff2);


                    if(diff2<diff)>
                        diff=diff2;


                    cout<<"temp="<<temp<<"temp2="<<temp2<<"diff="<<diff<<endl;
                }
            }

        }
    }
    cout<<"diff="<<diff<<" value="<<value<<endl;
    int aa=(value+diff)/2;
    int b=(value-diff)/2;
    cout<<"Peter should buy books whose prices are "<<b<<" and "<<aa<<endl;</stdlib.h></algorithm></stdio.h></limits.h></cmath></iostream>

Define "not working"

I think you should learn to use the debugger as soon as possible. Rather than guessing what your code is doing, It is time to see your code executing and ensuring that it does what you expect.

The debugger allow you to follow the execution line by line, inspect variables and you will see that there is a point where it stop doing what you expect.

#include <stdlib.h>


Abs is defined in the stdlib.h file you can find that out by simply looking at the help for Abs.

If you find you need the float version it is called fabs and is defined in math.h
