    Unhappy Can't figure out compiler message please help

    Please help. The two error messages are 1. base class 'Employee' has incomplete type and 2. Parse error at end of input. below is the code. Must enter the info and then it prints out what you entered using a base class and a derived class.

    Please help with other parts if you see any miss direction and send me in the right direction.

    Thanks so much.

    Relook your class Employee definition.

    Example:
    >>char EmployeeName;
    and
    >>float getName(void) { return name[]; }

    If I were a compiler I'd be confused too.
    Is EmployeeName a char or a char [] or char *?
    Is name[] a float?

    Clean up your class declarations and prototypes, recompile and let us know what happened.
