build linked list using an input file

Posted 08 November 2009 - 03:13 PM

Please help, I have 1 error! I am using an input file to build into linked list. I am getting the error message: syntax error: identifier ListNode. It seems I must be calling the incorrect constructor, I have been working on this forever and can't seem to get it error free. Please help ASAP! Thanks!

#include <iostream>
#include <fstream>
#include <ctime>
#include <string>
#include <cstdlib>
//#include "input_data.h"

using namespace std;

class Node {
                int x;
	Node *next;
	Node *prev;

class NumberList
	class ListNode
		friend class NumberList;	//allows all mem fcns of NumberList to access mem fcns of ListNode
		double value;		//data portion of the node
		ListNode *next;		//successor pointer, points to the next node

		ListNode(double value1, ListNode *next1 = NULL)	//constructor
			value = value1;
			next = next1;

	ListNode *head;
	NumberList()			//constructor, initializes head pointer to NULL
		{head = NULL;}
	void insertNode(double);
	void appendNode(double);
	void deleteNode(double);
	void displayList();

int main() {

	NumberList one;
	NumberList two;

	cout << "The following are the elements of Periodic Table:\n" << endl;
	cout << "Atomic	 Atomic	  Atomic " << endl;
	cout << "number:	 symbol:  name:" << endl;
	cout << "------------------------------------------------" << endl;

	fstream myfile;							//file object
	string input;								//variable used to read line from file
	myfile.open("input_data.h", ios::in);	//opens file for input, information will be read from the file

	// If we couldn't open the input file stream for reading 

	if (!myfile) 
		// Print an error and exit 
		cout << "Error, input_data.h could not be opened for reading!" << endl; 
	// While there's still stuff left to read 
	getline(myfile, input);  
	while (!myfile.eof())  
		// read stuff from the file into a string and print it        
		cout << input << endl;
	NumberList *head = NULL;		         //i may need to rewrite this base on the line below
	// Read the file into a linked list
	cout << "The contents of the file are:" << endl;
	while (myfile >> input)
		cout << input << " ";
	//create a node to hold this number
		head = new ListNode (input, head);          //this is where my error is
	cout << endl;

	one.displayList();		//prints functions for object "one"
	two.displayList();		//prints functions for object "two"

	cout << endl;
	cout << endl;


	cout << endl;

	return 0;

why do you have a node class and a list node class?

while (!myfile.eof())  
				// read stuff from the file into a string and print it		
				cout << input << endl;


This seems like very incomplete code. Also, ListNode does not exist in main, only within ur objects of NumberList, which is why you are getting the type identifier error.
