        Movie a(Scorcese, the Departed, Drama, 151, Leonardo diCaprio, 5 Stars, 2006);
        Movie b(Wachowski Brothers, The Matrix, SciFi, 136, Keanu Reeves, 4.5 Stars, 1999);
        Movie c(Reeves, Cloverfield, SciFi, 84, TJ Miller, 4.5 Stars, 2007);
        return 0;}

I am trying to create a class movie. When i enter in the Movie a,b,etc. it gives me the error undeclared identifier. I don't understand this error i was under the impression that by syntaxing it in that way it would call upon the constructor and enter it as that. any help?

also i know all my definitions are outside of the class it was a requirement

An identifier and a string are different because a string is surrounded by double-quotes.

Movie a(
  "Scorcese",
  "the Departed",
  "Drama",
  151,
  "Leonardo diCaprio",
  "5 Stars",
  "2006"
  );

Formatted for readability...

Have fun!

thank you very much i knew i was just missing something...its been 2 years since i have had c++

string Movie::show(){
	string s1;
	s1=getTitle();
	return s1;}
int Movie::showtime(){
	int time1;
	time1=getLength()/60;
	return time1;}
int Movie::showtimem(){
	int time2;
	time2=getLength()%60;
	return time2;}

is it possible to bring these three into one operation...i guess my real question is "is it possible to return more than one value and if yes then more than one value of more than one type?"

Yes. The easiest way would be to use reference parameters.

void Movie::getstuff( std::string &name, int &hours, int &minutes ) {
  name    = getTitle();
  hours   = getLength() /60;
  minutes = getLength() %60;
  }

Then you would call it like

std::string title;
int hour, min;
a.getstuff( title, hour, min );
std::cout << '"' << title << "\" has a runtime of "
  << hour << ':' << min << std::endl;

That said, the better way is to keep it separate like you have it.

std::cout << '"' << a.getTitle() << "\" has a runtime of "
  << a.showtime() << ':' << a.showtimem() << std::endl;

Good luck.
