i was giving an assignemnt to show stacks with out using the STL .
my question is is my code a correct example or not ?
and if so can some some one guide or explain to me what i did wrong or what i need to change

#include <stdio.h>
#include <string>
#include <vector>

class Foo
{
   std::string _str;
public:
   Foo(void)
   {
      printf("Foo: Void constructor\n");
      _str = "";
   }
   Foo ( const char *s )
   { 
      printf("Foo: Full constructor [%s]\n", s);
      _str = s;
   }
   Foo( const Foo& aCopy )
   {
      printf("Foo: Copy constructor\n");
      _str = aCopy._str;
   }
   virtual ~Foo()
   {
      printf("Foo: Destructor\n");
   }
   Foo operator=(const Foo& aCopy)
   {
      _str = aCopy._str;
      return *this;
   }
   std::string String()
   {
      return _str;
   }
   void setString( const char *str )
   {
      _str = str;
   }
};


int main()
{
   printf("Creating array via new\n");
   Foo *f = new Foo[2];("Hello");// line 47 
   printf("Creating array on heap\n");
   Foo f1[3];

   // Create a vector
   printf("Creating vector of foo\n");
   std::vector<Foo> fooVector;

   printf("Adding objects to vector\n");
   Foo f2;
   Foo f3;
   Foo f4;
   fooVector.insert( fooVector.end(), f2 );
   fooVector.insert( fooVector.end(), f3 );
   fooVector.insert( fooVector.end(), f4 );

   printf("Deleting array on heap\n");
   delete [] f;
}

I could have sworn <vector> is part of the STL....

IT IS !! thats why i am asking how can this be done with out it

No you didn't:

my question is is my code a correct example or not ?

And Comatose gave you the correct answer: No.

Now if you're going to shout and cry about it, nobody is going to help you anymore

You can implement it however you want (arrays, lists, blah blah) so long as you have "push" and "pop".

ok i think i figured it out but how do i add "top" to my code ?

#include<iostream>
using namespace std;
struct node{
	int data;
	node *next;
	};
//This function pushes data(node) to the stack
node * push(node*,node*);
//This function pops data (node) and returns pointer to the poped node
node * pop(node*);
//This function shows the stack
void show_stack(node*);
///These two global variables will help us track the start and end of the list
node *f,*l;

int main()
{
	int i,ch;
	f=l=NULL;
	cout<<"\t 1 to push"<<endl;
	cout<<"\t 2 to pop"<<endl;
	cout<<"\t 3 to show stack"<<endl;
	cout<<"\t 0 to exit"<<endl;
	while(1)
	{
		cout<<"Enter your choice:";
		cin>>ch;
		switch(ch)
		{
		case 1:
			{
			if(f==NULL)
			l=f=push(f,l);
			else
			l=push(f,l);
			break;
			}
		case 2:
			{
			cout<<"popped:"<<pop(f)->data<<endl;
			break;
			}

		case 3:
			{
			show_stack(f);
			break;
			}
		case 0:
			break;
		default:
			cout<<"Please enter a proper choice"<<endl;break;
		}
		if(ch==0)
		break;
	}
}
node * push(node *f,node *l)
{
	node *n;
	n=new node;
	cout<<"Enter data:";
	cin>>n->data;
	n->next=NULL;
	if(f==NULL)
	{f=l=n;return f;}
	else
	{
		l->next=n;
		l=n;return l;
	}

}
void show_stack(node *f)
{
	cout<<"showing data"<<endl;
	node *guest=f;
	while(guest!=NULL)
	{
		cout<<"\t"<<guest->data<<endl;
		guest=guest->next;
	}
}
node * pop(node *f)
{
	node *guest,*lb;
	guest=lb=f;
	while(guest->next!=NULL)
	{
		lb=guest;
		guest=guest->next;
	}
	lb->next=NULL;
	l=lb;
	return guest;
}

//This function pushes data(node) to the stack
node * push(node*,node*);
//This function pops data (node) and returns pointer to the poped node
node * pop(node*);
//This function shows the stack
void show_stack(node*);
///These two global variables will help us track the start and end of the list
node *f,*l;

Good, now put this lot in another class called say mystack.

Then your main contains things like
mystack s;

and
s.push( value );

and
value = s.pop();
