Do you mean that you are trying to write a function that duplicates the max_element() method?

ok im really not sure, i have this assignment and all that it says word for word
1. Implement the generic algorithm max_element (see section 2.4.2). The algorithm returns a pointer to the maximum element. Test your function with more than one type of array.

Ok, it sounds like your prof wants you to write your own implementation...can you post the algorithm referred to in your assignment?

Great! If you get a chance, perhaps you'd like to post your solution, so that other memebers may use it as a resource as well.
