    standard String operations

    I am a student as you people can make out... Now, i have a question in my assignment as

    Design interface and implement it in C++ to adequately give functionality of a String class. Get more ideas on this class from standard String operations available in any product such as Excel etc.

    Anyone can throw light on it on what i have to do with this ?

    Your teacher is probably telling you to think of things like inserting/deleting characters to/from a string, searching for a substring within a string, counting the number of times a substring occurs in a string, giving a word count, that sort of thing.

    You might first write a basic string class with member functions that allow you to manipulate the string data, then extend it with non-member non-friend functions to have more complex operations.

If they do, I ask them to find the smallest example that exhibits the problem and send me that. Mostly, they then find the error themselves. "Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    I'd first work on getting your Customer class working with a member function. This is basically like that, only much more complicated.
