    That this forum deals with C++, and gets, fgets, printf, etc are functions that are "classic C" rather than C++ style.

    Compilers can produce warnings - make the compiler programmers happy: Use them!
    Please don't PM me for help - and no, I don't do help over instant messengers.

    Not to mention that classes are C++ and this whole code is actually based on C++, so using C instead of C++ is bad practice.
