Usually error messages are a good indication of problems. You should be compiling often and fixing the errors as you go, not compiling after writing everything.

The first thing I notice is this:

SortedList(const SortedList<T> & rhs): head(NULL), tail(NULL) { //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// // Put your hw#3 coresponding item here /////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// //assignment operator // + O(n) //call copy constructor once. SortedList & operator=(const SortedList<T> & rhs) ;

You seem to be missing a closing brace for the constructor.

Next this:

Node<T> * insert(const T & value); {

Here you seem to have an errant semicolon. You do this several places.

So before you even worry about adding anything else fix these and any other errors you find before moving on.

Once you have the errors fixed you will need to create your main and actually try to use this class, because you are using templates, then recompile. Templates are not actually created until they are used so create a function that actually tries to declare and use the class.

I also edited your title to be more accurate.

The problem is that when you went to implement the functions you tried to implement them inside the class definition, instead of placing them outside the class definition, therefore you need to remove the semicolons. This is not a mistake by your instructor, it is your mistake. Normally the definition of the class is separated from the implementation:

class Test { public: void someFunction(); private: int someVariable; }; void Test::someFunction() { someVariable = 10; }

Quote

No, you should be able to test most of the class without the copy constructor and assignment operator. There are "extra" semicolons several places in your code not just the assignment and assignment operator. Like I said before you go any further get the program to compile without warnings or errors.

The class functions, constructors, etc. etc. that I have coded, copy constructor and assignment operator still missing:

One reason I haven't gone and created a main yet is because the way the teacher set this up, is that the teacher doesn't give us much time on the assignment and the main he wants is complicated to set up (it has to test 15 different list creations, each one 100 times, find average run time completion, and then we graph it. Since it is difficult to run a test 1500 times manually, he says to make main do it. I will have enough debugging as is with that monstrosity(not that familiar with creating a program like that), prefer not to add more to it. All I want is tips on how to create the copy constructor for this this and the assignment operator, unless you see other errors I am currently unable to detect, again I fixed the semicolon issue I think.)

Edit: just realized, I think I may be missing an awful lot of include statements, as to which ones, not sure.

If not, than make node to be inserted last node. If last node was greater than node to be inserted, go back to beginning and compare next node (2nd in this case) Make sure next node is less than node to be inserted. If it isn't, make node to be inserted the 2nd Node(in between the first node and former 2nd node) If it is less, go to other side again and check the 2nd to last node. Do similar comparisons until node is inserted, or the two ends of the comparing function meets in middle In which case node to be inserted is at the median of the linked list. This algorithm uses a single while statement, with each iteration looking at both ends of the list. Is inefficient if the insertion point makes the node to be inserted the second node, but if it is at a later position, it is actually as efficient as O(n)=n, and can be more efficient than the regular sorted insert because it does not need to look at every node in sequence. Only works with doubly linked list, not single linked list. Uses 3 if statements, one if statement starts for loop (which itself contains an if statement), but if one of the other if statements are followed, loop isn't used saving time. Best case scenario is if the node will be inserted at beginning or very end, worst case is if it is smack dab in the middle. Decided that since I such limited amount of time, I would forgo using my above procedure and go with a regular sorted insertion(start at beginning, end at end. Still tests fist and last nodes though. Worst case scenario is if is inserted at second to last node position. If I had more time, I would have used the idea I came up with.

errors:

Error 1 error C2065: 'Obj' : undeclared identifier c:\users\jason burn\desktop\compsci class\hw3and4\sortedlist.cpp 50

Error 2 error C2923: 'Node' : 'Obj' is not a valid template type argument for parameter 'Obj' c:\users\jason burn\desktop\compsci class\hw3and4\sortedlist.cpp 50

Error 3 error C2512: 'Node' : no appropriate default constructor available c:\users\jason burn\desktop\compsci class\hw3and4\sortedlist.cpp 50

And for the next 3 errors, its a repeat of above, but on line 51 instead of line 50.

So what is an obj? Shouldn't it be the same Type as your template class Type?

Edit: Obj is supposed to be a generic type, to be replaced by int in the case of my main. That is what I am trying anyway.

template<class T> class SortedList { public: SortedList():head(NULL), tail(NULL), current(NULL), count(0) { head = new Node<Obj>; tail = new Node<Obj>;

Look closely at your class definition, what "generic type" is this class using? Hint: It's not "Obj".
