hello all,

i have almost finished a C++ program but am not sure where to place these lines and was hoping for some direction. i know i need to implement:

complx &operator + (double, complx);

complx &operator - (double, complx);

complx &operator * (double, complx);

but i dont exactly know where to place them. Im pretty sure they will go respectively in the complx.cpp page. Any help would be appreciated. and sorry about the length of this post. i've underlined a line of code towards the very bottom where i am getting my compiling error and im pretty sure it has to do with not including complx &operator (double, complx); in the complx.cpp file. I no longer have my notes on alot of this after formating my hard drive and forgetting to save them. so again, thanks for any help given

Code:// Complx.cpp #include "complx.h" // define I/O stream extern ifstream &operator >> ( ifstream &in_file, complx &number ) { double re, is; char ch; if (in_file >> ch && ch == '('&& in_file >> re >> ch && ch == ',' && in_file >> is >> ch && ch == ')') number.Set(re,is); else cerr << "Finish the input"<<endl; return in_file; } ostream& operator << ( ostream& out_file, complx number ); // define constructor complx::complx( double r, double i ) { real = r; imag = i; } // define overloaded + (plus) operator complx complx::operator+ (complx c) { complx result; result.real = (this->real + c.real); result.imag = (this->imag + c.imag); return result; } // define overloaded - (minus) operator complx complx::operator- (complx c) { complx result; result.real = (this->real - c.real); result.real = (this->imag - c.imag); return result; } // define overloaded * (multiplication) operator complx complx::operator* (complx c) { complx result; result.real = (this->real * c.real); result.real = (this->imag * c.imag); return result; }
