    Assistance needed.. C++ program [structures, functions..]

    Hello there!

    A very close friend of mine asked me for help a few days ago regarding a C++ program and I thought I could help him. Unfortunately the program seems a bit too complicated for me and that's why I ask for your assistance!

    I'd really appreciate if any of you could help me or at least give me some tips and guidelines

    Ok, here's a brief describtion of my friend's assignment:


    Write a program that stores information (something like a a database i guess) about teachers. Include the following:
    1) Class;
    2) First name of the teacher;
    3) Family name;
    4) School name;
    5) Years of service.

    The program should be able to perform the following tasks:

    1. Creating the so-called database on start (at least 20 entries required) and storing them on a separate file called "prep.txt".

    2. Printing the data on the screen.

    3. Include the following Options:

    > adding new entries;
    > editing current entries using the following filters:
    1) class;
    2) teacher's family name;
    3) teacher's years of service.

    >deleting entries using the following fileters:
    1) class;
    2) teacher's family name;
    3) teacher's years of service.

    >sorting entries by:
    1)teacher's family name (asc);
    2)years of service (desc).

    4. Making References to:

    > all teachers teaching the same class;
    > all teachers with years of service > 5 y.;
    > all math teachers (stored on separated file - "matem.txt").

    _____________________________________________________________


    The describtion ain't very clear but thats the exact assignment.. By the way, there's no requirement for the program to use Windows interface (thank God).


    I tried using structures and I managed to save the information on a separated file and print it on the screen.

    For the so called options menu I used a switch case statement and functions but all I could do was the part about adding new entries.. To be honest I don't really know how to do the rest..

    Any help, tips, guidelines etc. would be more than welcome! I apologise for bothering you with that stuff but I really don't know what to do and I promised my friend to do it for him, he really needs some assistance right now..

    Thank you all in advance!

    David

    PS: If it's not too much to ask for, I would really really appreciate if anyone could post the source code, I've been trying to do it for over a week or so and spent some sleepless nights on it but unfortuantely my efforts have been in vain..

    If you look around this board, there have been hundreds of posts about more or less this exact exercise. It's basic textbook exercise. Since you don't have a real question, I don't have an answer for you.

    The only thing I will say though is that if you are not storing your data in one of the standard containers, then you are probably doing it wrong.

    thank you for the fast reply..

    unfortunately since I started studying law I havent't had the time to continue with my c++ training so I'm still pretty much a beginner..

    anyway I'll try searching the forums for similiar threads, I guess
