    Question Collecting Common Functions

    After several C++ projects I have several useful functions which I use regularly, such as bubbleSort(), initializeArray(), among others.

    My instructor has said to create a "personal library" of code which can be reused in any situation without a lot of modification.

    My question is, is this said figuratively (must include it in class definition), or can this be done in another simple manner (its own class)?

    Thanks - with some fiddling I was able to get this to work.

    Two questions, though:

    1. Do these library functions need to be set static?

    2. Is there another way to access these methods other than using public or friend?
