    Starting a program

    I have an assignment to do for college but I'm not on here to cheat. Basically I've read 200 pages of my C++ programming book on everything up to classes, pointers, memory allocation, overloading, etc. and I understand pretty much everthing. When I looked at my assignment though I just don't know how to get started.

    I don't really understand what I'm being asked to do. Could someone give me hints on what I need to do to get started? Any tips would be great. If you need more info just ask.

    Thanks in advance.

    This is all I can come up with to get started:

    Code:
    class set
    {
    public:
        set();
        void creat_empty( char **codes);
    private:
        char **codes;    
    };
    I know for definite I'd be able to do it if the assignment was maybe worded differently but as of now I'm lost. Cheers.

    Code:
    char **codes
    Why not try strings?

    [edit]
    Never mind:
    A code is stored as a 5 character C-string

    Code:
    class set
    That already exists. Call your class something else.
