    Function of string ???

    hi everyone, i just want to ask that can i make the following code into function?

    Code:
        if(physicalCycle(dob, currentDate) < 100 && physicalCycle(dob, currentDate) > 0)
        {
            cout<<"Ascending";
        }
        else if(physicalCycle(dob, currentDate) < 0)
        {
            cout<<"Descending";
        }
        else
        {
            cout<<"Critical day";
        }
    if yes, wat data type should i use? string?

    Yes, you could. It could return a std::string, or void if you just plan to print from within the function.

    Well I'm making a total guess as to what dob and currentDate are, but I guess thy're strings. You'd pass them in as const references though, and specify the return type as void.
    Code:
    void biorythmState(const string& dob, const string& currentDate) {
        if(physicalCycle(dob, currentDate) < 100 && physicalCycle(dob, currentDate) > 0)
        {
            cout<<"Ascending";
        }
        else if(physicalCycle(dob, currentDate) < 0)
        {
            cout<<"Descending";
        }
        else
        {
            cout<<"Critical day";
        }
    }
