A C++ program to read from text file records of chocolate types and amounts. Each type is maintained in an array by index. A summary report is produced at the end.

The O-So-Good Chocolate Company produces different types of chocolates daily. They need a little summary report that shows how much of each chocolate type they produce for a given month. This way they can plan next month's production schedule.

They record each day's production for each chocolate type in a file named Chocolates.
I will put the file out on Blackboard under Assignments.. The data indicates the batches of chocolates made each day and is describes as the type of chocolates produced and the number of pieces in each batch. The company makes several different chocolates each day so there will be several different entries for a given day. The input will be two numbers per line where the first number is the chocolate type and the second is the number of pieces made for that batch. There are 25 chocolate types numbered 1 to 25.
For example:
3 30 chocolate number 3 there are 30 pieces
21 45 chocolate number 21 there are 45 pieces
6 28 chocolate number 6 there are 28 pieces
etc..

The company can produce up to 25 different kinds of chocolates. The input file is one month of data.
You are to count the number of chocolates pieces for each kind of chocolate produced and the number of batches for the given month.
The report should have a title and headings. Output for each type of chocolate, the total pieces produced, the total batches produced, the average number of pieces produced in each batch. Label all output and make it a nice readable report, table format.

You must use arrays, pass arrays, and use functions.

I have written the C++ program and attached the whole C++ project.

Now it will produce the results as shown below.

Remember to place Chocolates.txt in the same directory as executable. There is also an important notice about one line of code at the very bottom of this text (see below).

Good luck and thank you for using ...
