Okay sorry to bug you guys again, However I think this post might be more worthy of a discussion ;)

I'm having so far a pretty fun time with C++ i'm learning new stuff everyday, and i'm finally learning how the rand() works.

I'm writing a supposedely ( :tazz: ) simple program that takes the the user inputed data and rolls however many dice that user types in.

*EDIT* HAHA it works now, thanks to someones help. There is no problems with this code now so you guys can use it as an example ;)

#include <iostream>
#include <time.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

using namespace std;

int main ()


int number_of_soldiers;
int number_of_casualties;
number_of_casualties = 0;

cout << "How many soldiers do you have?\n";
cin >> number_of_soldiers;

cout << "You roll ";
cout << number_of_soldiers;
cout << " dice.\n";

while( number_of_soldiers-- > 0 ){
if( rand()%6 + 1 == 1 ){ ++number_of_casualties; }

cout << " You destroyed ";
cout << number_of_casualties;
cout << " units.";

return 0;
