// creating a very simple C++ Line class, step 3: adding even more functionalities

#include <iostream>

using namespace std;

 

// class, declaration

class line

{

char* color;

float weight;

float length;

char * arrow;

public:

line(void);

char* LineColor(char* color){return color;};

float LineWeight(float weight){return weight;};

float LineLength(float length){return length;};

char *LineArrow(char* arrow){return arrow = "YES";};

~line(void);

};

 

// implementation part

line::line(void)

{

// constructors or initial values

weight = 0.25;

length = 10;

}

line::~line(void)

{

color = NULL;

weight = 0;

length = 0;

arrow = NULL;

}

 

// the main

void main(void)

{

line LineOne;

float x = 1.25, y = 2.25;

char newcolor[10] = "BLUE", *colorptr;

 

cout<<"Line attributes, a very simple C++ class example"<<endl;

cout<<"---------------------------------------------"<<endl;

 

colorptr = newcolor;

 

// just for testing the new attribute values

cout<<"\nAs normal variables....."<<endl;

cout<<"Test the new line weight = "<<x<<endl;

cout<<"Test the new line length = "<<y<<endl;

cout<<"Test the new line color is = "<<colorptr<<endl;

cout<<"\nUsing class......."<<endl;

cout<<"New line's color is "<<LineOne.LineColor(colorptr)<<endl;

cout<<"New line's weight is "<<LineOne.LineWeight(x)<<" unit"<<endl;

cout<<"New line's length is "<<LineOne.LineLength(y)<<" unit"<<endl;

cout<<"Line's arrow? "<<LineOne.LineArrow(" ")<<endl<<endl;

 

return;

}

 

Output example:

 

Line attributes, a very simple C++ class example

---------------------------------------------

As normal variables.....

Test the new line weight = 1.25

Test the new line length = 2.25

Test the new line color is = BLUE

Using class.......

New line's color is BLUE

New line's weight is 1.25 unit

New line's length is 2.25 unit

Line's arrow? YES

Press any key to continue . . .
