Linear search using array reference passing to function

Source Code

TC++ #1628

Source Code

Run Output

Enter search term 32
Element found


Enter search term 12
Element not found


When array is passed as a reference in a target function, its size can not be automatically determined using sizeof operator as only the location of first member of array is passed. Therefore the size of array has to be essentially passed to the target function.

Suggested Filename(s): linearsearchfunc.cpp, searchfunc.cpp, arrrefpassing.cpp
