No. wordlist is a class. wordcount is also a class. wordlist has four data members and two member functions. It has wordcount, firstline, and lastline. wordcount, firstline, and lastline are all of type Array. Array is a user defined class, not to be confused with array out of the stl. wordlist also has a fourth data member, string word[MAXWORDS]; const int MAXWORDS = 200; wordlist also includes two constructors, a default and another that allows the programmer to specify the size. The effect of both these constructors in the actual program should be the same, where all three Array classes are initialized to 200.
