    illegal?

    can anyone please look at the code below ( its to enter data in to objects in a class) and explain why the structure is illegal....thanks
    its based on OOP principles

    Code:
     cout << "*******************Person Details*********";
    
     cout << "Please enter person name";
     gets(personname);
     Names[i].setName(personname); /*sets name in object in class*/
    
     cout << "data entered as follows:";
     cout << Names[i].getName();
     i++;

    Use cin.getline( ). Never use gets. Ever. Period.

    When using istreams and ostreams, use only those. Don't mix C-style input/output with C++ style.
