    Game of life help

    i have this assignment due monday, and i dont have any clue where to go next. im sure most of you are aware of the game of life. anyways i need to build it in C++ instead of the usual java. i am trying to make it with the multidimensional arrays, and i am getting lost. i am not sure where to ut teh rules, and i have given up on the randomization part of it. If you could give me any help or tips that would be great. either post or email it to me charesty@norwich.edu thanks--

    //Life Project

    #include <iostream>
    #include <stdlib.h>
    #include <cmath>
    #include <cstdlib>
    using namespace std;

    int x, y, spots;
    int life_spots [22][80];
    void end();
    void fill();
    const int N = 21;
    const int O = 79;
    string answer;
    int s, r, n, o;

    main ()
    life_spots[s][r] = 0;
    for (s = 0; s < 80; s++ )
    for (r = 0; r < 22; r++ )


    fill ();

    void fill ()

    cout << "How many spots in the 22X80 Graph would you to populate?";
    cin >> spots;

    for (n=0; n < spots; n++)
    cout << "Please enter the X coordinate followed by the Y Coordinate,";
    cout << "\n";
    cout << "with a space in between the two values:";
    cin >> x >> y;
    if (y > 80)
    cout << "Error, number must be less than or equal to 80 for Y\n";
    if (x > 22)
    cout << "Error, number must be less than or equal to 22 for X\n";



    cout << "Would you like to start over?\n";
    cin >> answer;
    if (answer == "yes")
