I think your bymistake wrote the main incorrectly

int main()
{
   int obj(2, 20.0, 'a');
   int obj_2;

   obj_2 = obj;

}

should be

int main()
{
   A obj(2, 20.0, 'a');
   A obj_2;

   obj_2 = obj;

}

int main()
{
   int obj(2, 20.0, 'a');
   int obj_2;

   obj_2 = obj;

}


--
 you possibly want obj and obj_2 as type of class A and not int

and one more thing you haven't defined the destructor


you can do two things

1. dont declare any ( cos its a simple class and the compiler can do the needful ). So you can just remove the line  ~A();

2. declare but  keep it empty i.e change the line  ~A();  to ~A(){}

Now I am getting this, couldn't figure out.

#include <iostream>

using namespace std;

class A {

public:

   A(int x, double y, char z) {a=x;
                         b=y;
                         c=z;
                              }

   ~A();

private:

   int a;
   double b;
   char c;

};

int main()
{
   A obj(2, 20.0, 'a');
   A obj_2;

   obj_2 = obj;

}


output:

classA.cpp: In function `int main()':
classA.cpp:27: no matching function for call to `A::A ()'
classA.cpp:9: candidates are: A::A(int, double, char)
classA.cpp:22:                 A::A(const A &)

Thats because u do not have a default constructor for class A

int main()
{
   A obj(2, 20.0, 'a');
   A obj_2;          // This would try to invoke the default constructor, hence error because no default constructor

   obj_2 = obj;     // This assigns obj to obj_2

}

can be

int main()
{
   A obj(2, 20.0, 'a');
   A obj_2 = obj;            // No default constructir needed, directly compiler synthesized copy constructor used
}

as amit said yuo dont have default constructors

one way would be to

change A(int x, double y, char z){
        a = x;
        b = y;
        c = z;

   }

to
A(int x = 0, double y = 0.0 , char z = ' '){
        a = x;
        b = y;
        c = z;

   }

== btw dont just copy what we tell here to your code and compile

read some literature to understand it too.

here in thise case your contructors work only when you supply 3 arguments to it. what if you dont supply any ? the code i gave wil substitute the default values.

The same thing as i said in previous comment

In C++, if u create a class with no constructor, the compiler provides u a default constructor
If u provide a constructor taking 1/more parameter(s) with at least one parameter not having default, then u have to provide a default constructor OR u cannot create a object with no parameters

Example

class A {
}

A obj1 ;     // OK, compiler provides default

class B {
       int i ;
        int j ;
     public :
        B ( int a, int b ) : i ( a ), j ( b ) {}
} ;

B obj1 ( 2,3 ) ; // OK
B obj2 ;     // Error , no default constructor
B obj3 = obj1 ; //OK compiler provides Copy constructor

Continuing my above example

class B {
       int i ;
        int j ;
     public :
        B ( int a  , int b = 100 ) : i ( a ), j ( b ) {}
} ;

B obj1 ( 2,3 ) ; // OK
B obj2 ;     // Error , no default constructor
B obj3 = obj1 ; //OK, compiler provides Copy constructor
B obj4 ( 10 ) ;      // OK, 10 is used as first parameter, and 100 as the second parameter to the constructor (because of default value)
