#include "stdafx.h"
#include <iostream>

using namespace std;

void fill(int a[], int length)
{
	for (int i = 0; i < length; i++)
	{
		cout << "Element #" << i+1 << endl;
		cin >> a[i];
	}
	 
}

void print(int a[], int length)

Matthew has the correct answer in Solution 1. I just wanted to add that it will probably not be the last time you encounter an error like this ;-)

1 solution

You missed a bracket here:
if (found)
			{
				cout << "K E Y Present" << endl;
>>>>
			else

"You broke the law! Go directly to jail, do no collect £200" as it says on the Monopoly board.
Or you could just put in the }
