    Advice on a Tic Tac Toe program needed!!!! (this should be an easy one for the pros out there)


    Hello, I am a student at the University of Akron, majoring in Computer Science.
    I currently have an assignment to create a two human player tic tac toe game.
    We are using Microsoft Visual C++ version 6.0. I have to create a class TicTacToe
    and within that class there needs to be a private data member "board" that
    is a 3-by-3 array. I understand how to create the array, but what I need
    help with is how to create the two players and test for whether the game
    has been won by one of the players of if the game is a draw. If anybody is
    able to give me hints as to how I would go about doing this, I would be very
    grateful. Thanks for your time!

    Well what u have to do is simple
    Allot all 9 boxes such values so that u get the same total when u add
    them vertically or horizontally or diagonally(This si the Winning total).
    then check for the totals after each move. if the total is the same as the
    Winning total the player has won
    if want more details i recommend a boook of Artificial intelligence by
    Rich
