    Help ~~ (please!)

    Create a person class to represent a person. (You may call the class personType.) To simplify things, have the class have 2 variable members for the person's first and last name. Include 2 constructors. One should be a default constructor and the other should be one with parameters. Include respective functions for:
     setting the name,
     getting the name, and
     printing the name on the screen.

    Have your main program call these functions to demonstrate how they work.
    Explain how you can replace both constructors with one constructor by using a single constructor with default parameters.

    Code:
    #ifndef personType_H
    #define personType_H
    #include <string> 
    
    using namespace std; 
    
    class personType 
    {
    public: 
    	personType( const string & ,  const string & ); 
    	
    	void setFirstname (const string & ); 
    	string getFirstname() const; 
    
    	void setLastname (const string & );
    	string getLastname() const; 
    
    private: 
    	string firstName; 
    	string lastName; 
    }; 
    
    #endif
    
    
    #include <iostream> 
    #include "personType.h" 
    
    using namespace std; 
    
    //constructor 
    personType::personType ( const string &first, const string &last )
    
    {
    	firstName = first; 
    	lastName = last; 
    }
    
    // set first name 
    void personType::setFirstName ( const string &first ) 
    
    {
    	firstName=first; 
    }
    string personType::getFirstName() const
    {
    	return firstName; 
    }
    
    void personType::setLastName ( const string &last) 
    {
    	lastName=last; 
    }
    
    void personType::print() const
    {
    	cout<<"Who's your Daddy?:" << firstName << '' << lastName
    }

    OK, and your question is what exactly?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    .

    cout<<"Who's your Daddy?:" << firstName << '' << lastName
    Does this mean you are pleased because you think you nailed the assignment? And that is why you posted without any question / problem?

    Or does your program literally request the name of the users Father?

    Without any other info then its hard to help
