Implement the Banker's algorithm described in Section 8.5.3 using C/C++. Your program should ...

1) Prompt user to enter the size of matrix n and m. Your program should accept any n x m matrix and m vectors where n and m are positive integer less than 10.
2) Read in Allocation, Max, and Available from allocation.txt, max.txt, and available.txt, respectively. You can assume that each entry of the matrix (or vector) in the input files is separated with ' ' or 'n'. That is, the input files

7 5 3 3 2 2 9 0 2 2 2 2


7 5 3
3 2 2
9 0 2
2 2 2

are considered to be identical entries, and they can be interpreted as 1x12, 2x6, 3x4, 4x3, and etc depending on the user input n and m. Obviously, your program needs to handle the error when the total number of entries in matrix exceeding the total number of entries in input files.

3) Properly perform Safety algorithm to report user if the initial state is in safe state. If state is safe, report a safe sequence and go to step 4. If not, terminate the program.

4) Prompt user for new Requesti, perform Resource-Request algorithm, and perform Safety algorithm to report if the current state is safe. If state is safe, report a safe sequence. If state is unsafe, output "unsafe"

5) Repeat step 4 above until user terminates the program.

Try the following program. It has basic structure what you are looking for.

#include <iostream>
#define M 3
#define N 5
using namespace std;

void readMax(int max[N][M]);
void printMax(int max[N][M]);
bool lessEqNeedWork(int index, int need[N][M], int work[M]);
void printSafeStatus(int work[M], bool finish[N], int step);
void printRequestStatus(int request[M], int available[M], int step);
bool isSafe(int max[N][M], int allocation[N][M], int system[N], int need[N][M], int available[M]);

int main(int argc, char **argv)

int i, j, k;
int max[N][M]={ {7,5,3},
int allocation[N][M]={
int available[M]={3,3,2};
int need[N][M]={
int system[N]={10, 5, 7};
int work[M]={0};
int request[N][M]={
{0, 2, 0},
{1, 0, 2},
{1, 0, 0},//request that can be granted immediatly
{0, 2, 1},//request that can't be granted immediatly
