    easy fix

    Ok, classes are confusing me alot. here some code, and I will give you the error. I'm not entirely sure what is wrong with it, but maybe you can help.
    Code:
    #include<iostream>
    #include<fstream>
    #include<string>
    #include<cstdlib>
    using namespace std;
    
    
    class employee
    {
    public:
      string lname;
      string fname;
      string address;
      string city;
      string state;
      string zip;
      char hos;
      int payrate;
      int hours;
      int dependents;
      int gpay;
      int fed;
      int state1;
      int social;
      int net;
      int compute(int payrate, int hours, int dependents, int gpay, int fed, int state1, int social, int net, char hos);
    };
    employee::employee();
    int main()
    {
      char in[20];
      char out[20];
      cout<<"Enter the name of the file you want to write to.";
      cin.get(out, 20);
      cin.ignore(80, '\n');
      cout<<"Enter the name of the file you want to read from.";
      cin.get(in, 20);
      cin.ignore(80, '\n');
      ifstream infile;
      infile.open(in);
      ofstream outfile;
      outfile.open(out);
      employee::compute(int payrate, int hours, int dependents, int gpay, int fed, int state1, int social, int net, char hos);
      infile.close();
      outfile.close();
      return 0;
    }
    This has been a public service announcement from GOD.

    Learn the difference between prototyping a function (again) and calling it
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.
