I am pretty stuck with my bezier curve programme. I think i almost have it done, but it has alot of run time errors which i cant debug. Can anyone help who is good at debugging cos i am stumped. Help is much appreciated. Here is the code for the programme: Code: #pragma windows 500000,500000 #include <windows.h> #include <dbos/graphics.h> #include <iostream.h> #include <math.h> int controlpoints(); int translate(); int clearscreen(); int replot(); int scale(); int fact(int i); int nCi(int i); double bu(int i,double u); void C(double u); void calc_bez(); void draw_bez(); int degrees=3; double controlpoint[8][3]={{0,350,0},{250,350,0},{300,100,0},{350,500,0},{400,200,0},{450,450,0},{500,350,0},{650,350,0}}; double controlpointT[8][3]; double translation[3]; int handle; double scalingfactor; int a=1; int b=0; const int number=1000; double bez_points[number][3]; int main() { int width=650; int height=650; winio("%gr[black]&", width, height); winio("%ca[Bezier Curve]&"); winio("%ww&"); winio("\t%bfBezier Curve Options%sf\n&"); winio("\n \tDegrees Of Bezier Curve\t%dd%1rd\n&",1, °rees); winio("\n \t%^bt[Change Control Points]\n&", controlpoints); winio("\n \t%2`ga%rb[Show Control Lines]\n \t%rb[Don`t Show Control Lines]\n\n&",&a,&b,&a,&b); winio("\n \t%bfTRANSFORMATIONS:%sf\n&"); winio("\n \t%^bt[Translate]\n&", translate); winio("\n \t%^bt[Scale]\n&", scale); winio("\n \t%bt[Rotate]\n&"); winio("\n\n \t%bf%bt[Quit]%sf&"); winio("%lw", &handle); } int translate() { if (degrees<1) { winio("%ca[Error]&"); winio("The bezier curve must have at least 1 degree.\n\nPlease increase the number of degrees&"); winio("\n\n%bt[Back to main menu]"); } else if (degrees>7) { winio("%ca[Error]&"); winio("The bezier curve cannot have more than 7 degrees.\n\nPlease decrease the number of degrees&"); winio("\n\n%bt[Back to main menu]"); } else if (degrees<=7) { winio("%ca[Translating]%ww&"); winio("Please enter the amounts by which you wish to translate your bezier curve\n\n&"); winio("Enter translaton co-ordinates for the x co-ordinate:\t%rf\n\n&",&translation[0]); winio("Enter translation co-ordinates for the y co-ordinate:\t%rf\n\n&",&translation[1]); winio("Enter translation co-ordinates for the z co-ordinates:\t%rf\n\n&",&translation[2]); winio("%bt[Next]"); for (int i=0; i<8; i++) { for (int j=0; j<3; j++) { controlpointT[i][j]=controlpoint[i][j]+translation[j]; controlpoint[i][j]=controlpointT[i][j]; } } winio("%ca[Translating]&"); winio("%^bt[Replot Graph]\t\t&", replot); winio("%bt[Return To Main Menu Without Re-Plotting]"); } return 1; } int scale() { winio("%ca[Scaling]&"); winio("Please enter the scaling factor, by which you wish to scale your bezier curve\n\n&"); winio("Please note, the scaling factor must be between 0 and 1:\t%rf\n\n&", &scalingfactor); winio("%bt[Next]"); winio("%ca[Scaling]&"); winio("%^bt[Replot Graph]\t\t&", replot); winio("%bt[Return To Main Menu Without Re-Plotting]"); return 1; } int clearscreen() { clear_screen(); return 1; } int controlpoints() { if (degrees>7) { winio("%ca[Error]&"); winio("The bezier curve must cannot have more than 7 degrees.\n\nPlease decrease the number of degrees and re-plot the control points&"); winio("\n\n%bt[Back to main menu]"); } else if (degrees<1) { winio("%ca[Error]&"); winio("The bezier curve must have at least 1 degree.\n\nPlease increase the number of degrees and re-plot the control points&"); winio("\n\n%bt[Back to main menu]"); } else if (degrees<=7) { winio("%ca[Control Points]&"); winio("%ww&"); for (int y=0; y<degrees+1; y++) { winio("Enter control point %wd co-ordinates (x,y,z):\t%rf\t%rf\t%rf\n\n&",y+1,&controlpoint[y][0],&controlpoint[y][1],&controlpoint[y][2]); } winio("%bt[Done]"); clearscreen(); if (a==1) { for (int i=0; i<degrees; i++) { draw_line(controlpoint[i][0],controlpoint[i][1],controlpoint[i+1][0],controlpoint[i+1][1],9); } } // draw curve draw_bez(); } return 1; } int replot() { for (int d=1; d<degrees+1; d++) { clearscreen(); if (a==1) { for (int i=0; i<degrees; i++) { draw_line(controlpoint[i][0],controlpoint[i][1],controlpoint[i+1][0],controlpoint[i+1][1],9); } } } return 0; } int fact(int i) { if (i<=1) return 1; else return i*fact(i-1); } int nCi(int i) { return fact(degrees)/(fact(degrees-i)*fact(i)); } double bu(int i,double u) { return nCi(i)*pow(1-u,degrees-1)*pow(u,i); } void C(double u) { double point[3]; for (int k=0;k<3;k++) { for (int i=0;i<degrees+1;i++) { for (int j=0;j<number;j++) { point[k]=bu(i,u)*controlpoint[i][k]; bez_points[j][k]=point[k]; } } } } void calc_bez() { double u; for (int i=0;i<number;i++) { u=(i)/(number-1); C(u); } } void draw_bez() { calc_bez(); for (int i=0;i<number;i++) { draw_line(bez_points[i][0],bez_points[i][1],bez_points[i+1][0],bez_points[i+1][1],9); } }

Hey thats asking just way too much. If you can point out where the problem is we can definitely help but cannot do all of your stuff. If you are ready to learn and ask for some help we can definitely.

Fair enough. Well the programme compiles with no errors. But in the programme when you come to actually calculate the points on the bezier curve, there are a few run time errors, which i think are either to do with variables not being passed between functions properly, or to do with variables being assigned the wrong type. As i always found run time errors are the hardest to get rid of, help with debugging methods is much needed, or advice from anyone who has done a similar programme.
