Still toying with inheritance, and another Q:
How would I go about declaring an instance of a subclass and send a constructor argument to the constructor of a base class?
Specifically I need to modify a data member, declared as private in a base class. I think this requires the use of that class' constructor, but if I apply the argument to the derived class' constructor, I get a no matching funciton to call. If I try to have the derived class' constructor be overloaded to accept an argument, and change the data member, it tells me I can't touch a data member from outside of the class.
