    Question ostream& outrage !!!

    Code:
    const ostream& Diver:: list(ostream& out_tr) const
    {
    	cout<<"I am the trouble";
    	cout<<id_;
    	cout<<"Or me";
    	out_tr<<name_<<" "<<country_<<" ";
    	cout<<"The hole is here";
    	out_tr<<tmp_avg_<<endl;
    	
    	return out_tr;
    }
    >>> compilation passed
    and then trouble
    I use member.list(cout)
    in main()
    those lousy outputs are my attempt to find problem, but always failed after "I am the trouble"

    or should it be like this?
    Code:
    const ostream& Diver:: list(ostream& out_tr) const
    {
    		cout<<id_<<" "name_<<" "<<country_<<" "<<tmp_avg_<<endl;
    	
    	return out_tr;
    }

    Are you certain that the stream represented by out_tr is open?

    What problem?
    I recommend writing debug output to cerr, or at least flushing cout after EACH output.

    >>but always failed after "I am the trouble"
    You mean, "I am the touble" didn't output correctly, or do you mean id_ didn't output correctly? If id_ failed, then chances are:
    a) id_ is an unsigned char or pointer to a datatype other than char
    b) or id_ is filled with some 'garbage' value
    c) or the whole object is filled with some 'garbage' values, i.e. it wasn't initialized.
    Just Google It. √
