C++ Program to Find Largest Element of an Array

In this code, we will find the Largest element of array by using linear search. Given an array of N elements, we have to find the Largest element of array. In below C++ program we first take number of elements in array as input from user as store it in variable count

Examples To C++ Program Find Largest Element from Array


Array : [21, 32, 51, -5, -4, 9, 0, -2]
Largest Elementof Array : 51

To understand below example, you have must knowledge of following C++ programming topics; String in C++, for looping statements we need know For Loop in C++ and Array in C++.

Algorithm to Find Largest Element of Array

  • First Take Number of elements as input from user. Let it be N.
  • Then ask user to enter N numbers and store it in an array(lets call it input).
  • Initialize one variables max with first element of input.
  • Using a loop, traverse input from index 0 to N -1 and compare each element with max.
  • If current element is less than max, then update max with current element.
  • After array traversal max will have the Largest element.

C++ Program to Find Largest Element of an Array


void main()

 int input[100], count, i, max;
    cout<<"Enter Number of Elements in Array\n";
    cout<<"Enter any "<<count<<" Elements \n";
    // Read array elements
    for(i = 0; i < count; i++){
    max = input[0];
    // search num in inputArray from index 0 to elementCount-1 
    for(i = 0; i < count; i++){
	if(input[i] > max){
            max = input[i];
    cout<<"Maximum Element of Array\n"<<max;           


Enter Number of Elements in Array: 5
Enter any 5 Elements: 5
Largest Elementof Array : 51

Path variable is set for providing path for all Java tools like java, javac, javap, javah, jar, appletviewer which are used in java programming. All these tools are available in bin folders so we set path upto bin folders.

Classpath variable is set for providing a path for predefined Java classes which is used in our application. All classes are available in lib/rt.jar so we set classpath upto lib/rt.jar.
