    A question about STL Lists.

    I am gonna to write an ADT that represents the pile of cards used in a solitaire game. At first, i create a header file with class Pile.


    Code:
    // Pile.h
    #ifndef PILE_H
    #define PILE_H
    
    
    class Pile
    {
    public:
    	void addCard(const Card&card); //Adds a card to the Pile
    
    	void dump() const;
    
    
    private:
    
    	list<Card> cards; // Adds a card to the Pile
    
    
    
    
    };
    #endif

    My question is, inside the private, can i use
    Code:
    list<Card> cards; // Adds a card to the Pile
    to feed this requitement -> The Pile must have one attribute - a STL List of Cards.


    Thanks

    I don't see why not.
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    push_front or push_back, perhaps?

    Also, for the #include header.

    i think i have to use
    Code:
    #include <cstdlib>
    and anymore?

    Code:
    #include <list>
    for the actual STL list

    Don't forget to indicate the proper namespace. For example, use 'std::list' instead of just 'list' in the code.

    Code:
    // Pile.h
    #ifndef PILE_H
    #define PILE_H
     
    #include <list>
     
    class Pile
    {
    public:
    	void addCard(const Card&card); //Adds a card to the Pile
    	void dump() const;
    private:
    	std::list<Card> cards; // Adds a card to the Pile
    };
    #endif
    Or you could do this (not recommended, but "easier"):
    Code:
    // Pile.h
    #ifndef PILE_H
    #define PILE_H
     
    #include <list>
    using std::list;
     
    class Pile
    {
    public:
    	void addCard(const Card&card); //Adds a card to the Pile
    	void dump() const;
    private:
    	list<Card> cards; // Adds a card to the Pile
    };
    #endif
    Or this (not recommended, but "easiest"):
    Code:
    // Pile.h
    #ifndef PILE_H
    #define PILE_H
     
    #include <list>
    using namespace std;
     
    class Pile
    {
    public:
    	void addCard(const Card&card); //Adds a card to the Pile
    	void dump() const;
    private:
    	list<Card> cards; // Adds a card to the Pile
    };
    #endif
