An array is a collection of identical objects which are stored in consecutive memory locations under a common heading or a variable name. In other words, an array is a group or a table of values referred to by the same variable name.

Program Description: Here is a c++ program to read a set of numbers from the keyboard and to find out the largest number in the given array (the numbers are stored in a random order).

Program Code:
void main (void)
int a[100];
int i,n,larg;
cout << "How many numbers are in the array?" << endl;
cinn >> n;
cout << "Enter the elements" << endl;
for (i=0;i<=n-1;++i)
cin >> a[i];
cout << "Contents of the array" << endl;
for (i=0; i<=n-1;++i)
cout << a[i] << '\t';
cout << endl;
larg = a[0];
for (i=0;i<=n-1;++i)
if (larg < a[i])
larg = a[i];
cout << "Largest value in the array =" << larg;

Output of the above program:
How many numbers are in the array?
Enter the elements
11 23 45 67 3
Contents of the array
11 23 45 67 3
Largest value in the array = 67
