    Unhappy Array of objects

    "Create a 13 element array of Card objects".

    Tried typing: Card Hand[13];

    Wouldn't work tho. Card is my class, hand is the name of the object i'm trying to create. First time programming in nearly a year and my assignment is already 3 weeks late =(. Any help will be appreciated. Oh and if you need to see any other code to help, just ask, thx.

    It should work. Did you remember to include the header for your card class? Also did you make a default constructor for the card class? If you will recall when creating an array of objects teh default constructor is called automaticly.

    hope this helps

    Thanks alot, I did forget to include the class header. So when passing the object to functions its just "createNewHand(Hand[13]);"? My teacher wants main.cpp as just a driver of my program, code should be in a seperate file. So i'm declaring and calling my functions in main but i'm writing the code of the functions in a seperate file. Do I need to link main.cpp to bridge.cpp (where my functions are coded) just at compile time? Or do i need to include something at the top of the bridge.cpp function?

    each file you include with #include is a header file and should have a cpp or c or lib or dll file associated with it that will automatically be linked to the cpp file that has your main(). Only one cpp file per project should have a main().
