Can I have regular function and class function together? if so, where should i place the regular function declaration? The compiler wouldn't compile this one... the problem is function showlist() Thank you

# include <iostream>
	# include <string>
	# include <fstream>

	using namespace std;
	class Name
	{
	public:
		int id;
		string lastName;
		string firstName;
		string phone;
		double amt;
		void output();
		void set(int, string, string, string, double);
	
		//void addName(int, Name);

	};

	void showlist();
	int main()
	{
		/*
		Name name[300];
		
		ifstream reader;
		reader.open("names.txt");

		int i=0;
		while(reader>>name[i].id>>name[i].lastName>>name[i].firstName>>name[i].phone>>name[i].amt)
		{
			i++;
		}

		cout<<"There are total "<<i<<" people in the list."<<endl;
		cout<<endl;
		
		for(int x=0; x<i; x++)
		{
		name[x].output();
		}
		*/
		
                showlist();
		
		

		return 0;
	}



	
	void showList()
	{
		Name name[300];
		
		ifstream reader;
		reader.open("names.txt");

		int i=0;
		while(reader>>name[i].id>>name[i].lastName>>name[i].firstName>>name[i].phone>>name[i].amt)
		{
			i++;
		}

		cout<<"There are total "<<i<<" people in the list."<<endl;
		cout<<endl;
		
		for(int x=0; x<i; x++)
		{
		name[x].output();
		
		}
	}
	



	void Name::output()
	{
	
		cout<<id<<" "<<lastName<<" "<<firstName<<" "<<phone<<" "<<amt<<endl;
	}


	void Name::set(int inputID, string inputLastName, string inputFirstName, string inputPhone, double inputAmount)
	{
		id= inputID;
		lastName = inputLastName;
		firstName = inputFirstName;
		phone= inputPhone;
		amt = inputAmount;
	}

sorry,, it is actually a built error. however, does my program's syntax structure fine? This is my first time combining class function and regular function.

There is a spelling mistake with the function name. showlist() and showList()

god, i thought i would never make this kind of bug again....... thx so much

When you stop creating these kind of bugs you've stopped programming. Learning what type of problem the warnings and errors are pointing out takes time. Keep consistent with your naming protocols and this type of problem will decrease in frequency.
