### Merging One Dimensional Arrays

Merging of two arrays means to form one big array from two small arrays, which has element from both the arrays linearly.

Ex. if we have the following two arrays:

array1 [5] = {1,2,3,4,5}

array2 [5] = {6,7,8,9,10}

and we merge these two arrays to form an array merge_array, then it would have these elements:

merge_array [5] ={1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10}

So, from this example we understand that the array which will hold the merged elements should have a dimension equal to the sum of the dimensions of the two discrete arrays.

It is no big deal to merge two arrays, we just need to sum up the dimension of the arrays, and then allocate an array having that dimension.

Below is the example program that illustrates this.

Please go through the program to understand every bit of it. It is accompanied with enough comments to make everything clear. While two arrays has been merged here, you can easily modify it to merge as many arrays as you wish.

```  // -- Array Merging --
// -- Program --
// -------------------
// Example program to illustrate
// the merging of arrays
#include<iostream.h>
// process.h is needed for
// the exit function
#include<process.h>

void main(void)
{
int i,j;

// declare pointers for the needed
// arrays
int *array1,*array2;
int *merge_array;

// variables for the sizes of the arrays
// given by the user
int size_array1,size_array2,size_array3;

// input the number of elements
// required, by the user
cout<<"enter no. of elements for array1:";
cin>>size_array1;
cout<<"enter no. of elements for array2:";
cin>>size_array2;

// calculate the no. of elements
// required for the merge_array
size_array3=size_array1+size_array2;

// allocate the required arrays
array1=new int[size_array1];
array2=new int[size_array2];
merge_array=new int[size_array3];

// terminate if there is a problem in
// memory allocation of the arrays
if(array1==NULL || array2==NULL || merge_array==NULL)
exit(1);

// input the array elements
cout<<"\nFirst Array:\n";
for(i=0;i<size_array1;i++)
{
cout<<"element "<<i+1<<":";
cin>>array1[i];
}

cout<<"\nSecond Array:\n";
for(i=0;i<size_array2;i++)
{
cout<<"element "<<i+1<<":";
cin>>array2[i];
}

// merging is being done here
for(i=0;i<size_array1;i++)
merge_array[i]=array1[i];
for(j=0;j<size_array2;j++)
merge_array[i+j]=array2[j];
// till here

for(i=0;i<size_array3;i++)
{
cout<<"\n";
cout<<"element "<<i+1<<":";
cout<<merge_array[i];
}

cout<<endl;

// free-up the memory
delete[] array1;
delete[] array2;
delete[] merge_array;
}```

Good-Bye!

### Fix For Toshiba Satellite "RTC Battery is Low" Error (with Pictures)

RTC Battery is Low Error on a Toshiba Satellite laptop "RTC Battery is Low..." An error message flashing while you try to boot your laptop is enough to panic many people. But worry not! "RTC Battery" stands for Real-Time Clock battery which almost all laptops and PCs have on their motherboard to power the clock and sometimes to also keep the CMOS settings from getting erased while the system is switched off.  It is not uncommon for these batteries to last for years before requiring a replacement as the clock consumes very less power. And contrary to what some people tell you - they are not rechargeable or getting charged while your computer or laptop is running. In this article, we'll learn everything about RTC batteries and how to fix the error on your Toshiba Satellite laptop. What is an RTC Battery? RTC or CMOS batteries are small coin-shaped lithium batteries with a 3-volts output. Most laptops use

### The Best Way(s) to Comment out PHP/HTML Code

PHP supports various styles of comments. Please check the following example: <?php // Single line comment code (); # Single line Comment code2 (); /* Multi Line comment code(); The code inside doesn't run */ // /* This doesn NOT start a multi-line comment block /* Multi line comment block The following line still ends the multi-line comment block //*/ The " # " comment style, though, is rarely used. Do note, in the example, that anything (even a multi-block comment /* ) after a " // " or " # " is a comment, and /* */ around any single-line comment overrides it. This information will come in handy when we learn about some neat tricks next. Comment out PHP Code Blocks Check the following code <?php //* Toggle line if ( 1 ) {      // } else {      // } //*/ //* Toggle line if ( 2 ) {      // } else {      // } //*/ Now see how easy it is to toggle a part of PHP code by just removing or adding a single " / " from th

### How to Remove Bullet Points in CSS

This will be a short guide on how to remove bullet points from ordered/unordered lists with CSS, you only need two lines of CSS for this. The first removes the actual bullet points and the second one removes the space to the left, as evident from the following video: We'll also be doing some bullet beautification in the last section if that's what you are looking to do. How to Remove Bullet Points in HTML/CSS Now that we know what CSS properties actually accomplish what we want let's see how we can implement this in our HTML code. Using Inline "style" Tag (The quick and dirty way) As the title suggests, this is the quickest way to remove bullet points in which you wouldn't have to edit any CSS files (for example, for Blogger or WordPress). This method would be useful for a one-off case - just add the following " style " attribute to the list you want to remove the bullet points from: <h1>Ordered List</h1> <ol  style="list-styl
