C++: Need help with binary tree

Hi experts,

I have the code as following. When i compile it, there were some errors. I dont know how to solve it. Can some please give me a hand on this.

Since root is a private member of ... (you don't show enough for that) you can't access it via
bintree.root
You need a get function for it:
public:
   snode<T>* GetRoot (void) {return root};

private data members can only be accessed from the class itself, ie inside a class member function.

Thanks Steh for your responding,

I did like you said: modify the punblic class with stnode<T> *gerRoot(void). How, I got the same errors while I am trying to compile the code.

And,
**********
Private:
          stnode<T> *root;
               // pointer to tree root
************

It belongs to the template library "d_stree.h" .

SteHCommented:
in the class declaration (d_stree.h) you need to add the function GetRoot () as public:

public:
      stnode<T> * GetRoot (void) {return root};


and in the code above replace the lines containing
bintree.root
with
bintree.GetRoot ();
ie:
inorderOutput(bintree.GetRoot ());

Hi SteH,

Thank you so much for your help. After modified the d_stree.h and i made some changes in my .cpp code , the rpogram works fine now.
I really apreciate it!
