Debug Help

Any help debugging this code would be great!

#include<iostream.h>
#include<conio.h>
class Dress
 {
  private:
   char material[20];
   int size;
   char style[10];
   double price;

  public:
    Dress(const char mtrl[] = "cotton",const char stl[] = "daytime");
    void displayDress();
  };
Dress::Dress(char mtrl[], int sz, char stl[])
{
  strcpy(material,mtrl);
  strcoy(size,sz);
  strcpy(style,stl);
  price = 29.99;
  if(strcmp(material,"silk") == 0)
    price += 20.00;
  if(strcmp(style, "evening")==0)
    price += 40.00;
 }

void Dress::displayDress()
 {
   cout<<"A size "<<size<<" dress made of "<<material<<" and suitable for "<<
        style<<" wear costs $"<<price<<endl;
  }

void main()
  {
     cout<<"Dress sale! $29.99. Only $20 more for silk. Only $40 more for evening designs."<<endl;
      Dress dressA, dressB("wool"), dressC("silk",14,"evening"),
           dressD("denim",4,"casual"),dressE("silk",8,"business");
     dressA.displayDress();
     dressB.displayDress();
     dressC.displayDress();
     dressD.displayDress();
     dressE.displayDress();
     getch();
  }

When I compile the code, I have 4 errors which states "no overload function takes 3 parameters"  I am unsure what to do with that

Axter, like http://www.experts-exchange.com/cplusprog/Q.20288159.html (huh, another Kim?), I guess this is homework - the coding styles are too similar, and the task may have been "what is wrong with this code, as because of " strcoy(size,sz);" (an 'int'!!) it won't even compile, not to speak of "debugging"...

The error:

no overload function takes 3 parameters

relates to your code in main() where you are attempting to call the Dress constructor with 3 arguments as against the 2 that it expects.

Ouch. Double accounts. I was hoping that I was wrong...

Do a bit of reading on Classes and handling functions in C++ KimZeerip/KimHopper. This is basic knowledge you must have to proceed in this language.

Look at your code ... you have the following:

Dress(const char mtrl[] = "cotton",const char stl[] = "daytime");

// ....

Dress::Dress(char mtrl[], int sz, char stl[])
{
  ...
}

See the difference??

KimZeeripCommented:
Are you saying that the
int sz
has to be in the following line as well?:

 Dress(const char mtrl[] = "cotton",const char stl[] = "daytime");

ruff_ryderCommented:
yep yep.

Dress(const char mtrl[] = "cotton",const char stl[] = "daytime");

the above is your class declaration of the Dress COnstructor.


This code blow is your implementation of the Dress constructor. The signature of the Dress Constructor must be the same in the both the declaration and definition of the Constructor.

Dress::Dress(char mtrl[], int sz, char stl[])
{
 ...
}


As I said before though, do some reading.
