Iíve been given a project in C++ and i am very desperated. Iíve only been studying C++ for a couple of months and we are up to the classes chapter now. I don't even know how to start.
Here what it says: We are asked to create a kind of database, which utilizes a parking system of a shopping mall. The system will have reservation capabilities for customers. The program will also enable the end user to book/reserve a certain parking place for a specific car. All available parking places should be monitored with visual and/or textual information. The information required (Name,Surname,address,reg. number plates, arrival date,cost etc) has to be kept in a datebase for each customer. The menu must include a "key" by which the user can find at any time a certain car. Also we should create a database-like structure, with store capabilities of 120 different possible parking places. The program has to be able to back up all these attributes contained in the database by an option selected from the main menu. The created/saved file will be called backup.bak. The primary menu should be able to provide all the required information for the end user even the history log of his parking history in that particular parking. Once the user is logged off the system should be randomly initializes in order to place random cars in parking places. During initialization the car will be will be randomly created and randomly set in random parking places. Thereafter the menu of the program with the appropriate functions is presented.
1st) What exactly means with the "kind of datebase"? 2nd) In what way the program should be monitores with visual or textual information? 3rd) How you will search if a car with specific number plates exits in your datebase? 4th) And what is that thing with the backup file?
Have in mind that in our course we only tought functions, classes and objects. We havent tought to read/open or modify a file. This guy is asking for database... Please help me. I have to deliver this in a week from today.
Thanx in advance.
