    ???

    Hi Guys

    I am finally taking the step from C into C++, so here is my question . I am wondering is their a specific programming reason or just programmer preference when declaring methods inside or outside of a class.

    Thanks in advance

    Because the C forums are usually used when people actually want code.

    Anyways - for your question - Yes, there are programming reasons. Declaring a method in the class promotes encapsulation. If there's no methods in the class, it's really not much more that a struct.
