    a copy constructor simply makes a copy of another object

    Code:
    //i could be wrong... it's been a long time
    class Goldfish {
    public:
      Goldfish ();
      int trait1;
      char trait2;
      Goldfish (Goldfish& temp) {
        trait1 = temp.trait1;
        trait2 = temp.trait2;
    
    
      }
    
    
    
    };
    it's a very simple example, but it should work.
