Use the program, Arrays of Pointers, on p. 188 of the text as a starting point for this assignment. Refer to Appendix C for full directions on the changes to the program you must make to complete this assignment.

Here is the program from page 188:

// Ex4_07.cpp
// Initializing pointers with strings
#include < iostream >
using std::cin;
using std::cout;
using std::endl;
int main()
{
char* pstr[] = { "Robert Redford", // Initializing a pointer array
"Hopalong Cassidy",
"Lassie",
"Slim Pickens",
"Boris Karloff",
"Oliver Hardy"
};
char* pstart("Your lucky star is ");
int dice(0);
cout < < endl
< < "Pick a lucky star!"
< < "Enter a number between 1 and 6: ";
cin > > dice;
cout < < endl;
if(dice > = 1 & & dice < = 6) // Check input validity
cout < < pstart < < pstr[dice - 1]; // Output star name
else
cout < < "Sorry, you haven't got a lucky star."; // Invalid input
cout < < endl;
return 0;
}

Here is Appendix C:

Reference the following instructions to assist you when completing your Programming Using Arrays and Pointers assignment.

Using a for loop, print the contents of the array. The output should appear like this:

PRINTING CONTENTS OF ARRAY
==================================
A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

Change the program logic to prompt you for a position within the array that coincides with the letter. See the following example:

This is the title to your Program related to the alphabet.

Select the number that coincides with the alphabet.
For example, the number 7 should display the letter G.

Enter a number between 1 and 26: 4

The number you selected: 4
The letter related to this number: D

Write the code to update every other element within the array with a lowercase x. The output should appear like the following:

PRINTING CONTENTS OF ARRAY and adding x to every other element
===============================================================
A x C x E x G x I x K x M x O x Q x S x U x W x Y x

Write the code that will display only the even or odd numbered elements within the array. The output should appear as follows:

PRINTING CONTENTS OF ARRAY USING THE MOD Option
=====================================================
Even Numbered Element = 0 Contents of Element within Array is = A
Even Numbered Element = 2 Contents of Element within Array is = C
Even Numbered Element = 4 Contents of Element within Array is = E
Even Numbered Element = 6 Contents of Element within Array is = G
Even Numbered Element = 8 Contents of Element within Array is = I
Even Numbered Element = 10 Contents of Element within Array is = K
Even Numbered Element = 12 Contents of Element within Array is = M
Even Numbered Element = 14 Contents of Element within Array is = O
Even Numbered Element = 16 Contents of Element within Array is = Q
Even Numbered Element = 18 Contents of Element within Array is = S
Even Numbered Element = 20 Contents of Element within Array is = U
Even Numbered Element = 22 Contents of Element within Array is = W
Even Numbered Element = 24 Contents of Element within Array is = Y
