Don't think you can pass any parameter unless you create a point in your main.

template<class T>
	void my_list<T>::show_sllist(my_node<T>* p)
	{
		if(p!=0)
		{
			cout<<p->data;
			show_sllist(p->next);
		}
         }

Would i have to create a pointer of type my_node in main to show the list.

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

#include "my_list.h"
#include "my_list.cpp"
using list::my_list;

int main()
{
	//Test 1
	cout<<"TEST1\n";
	my_list<double> a;
	a.push_back(1.3);
	a.push_back(2.4);
	cout<<"Object1:\n";
	a.show_sllist();
	my_list<double> b(a);
	cout<<"Object2:\n";
	b.show_sllist();
	cout<<endl;

	//Test 2
	/*cout<<"TEST2\n";
	my_list<int> c;
	c.push_back(1);
	c.push_back(2);
	cout<<"Object1:\n";
	c.show_list();
	my_list<int> d(c);
	cout<<"Object2:\n";
	d.show_list();
	my_list <int>e;
	e=d;
	e.push_back(10);
	cout<<"Object3:\n";
	e.show_list();*/
	return 0;
}
template<class T>
	void my_list<T>::show_sllist(my_node<T>* p)
	{
		
		if(p!=0)
		{
			cout<<p->data;
			show_sllist(p->next);
		}
		
		/*my_node<T>* temp=head;
		if(head==0&&tail==0)
		{
			cout<<"nothing to show\n";
		}
		else
		{
			while(temp->next!=0)
			{
				cout<<temp->data<<"\n";
				temp=temp->next;		
			}
			cout<<temp->data<<endl;
		}*/
	}

head can't be accessed in main because it is a private variable :(.

main

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

#include "my_list.h"
#include "my_list.cpp"
using list::my_list;

int main()
{
	//Test 1
	cout<<"TEST1\n";
	my_list<double> a;
	a.push_back(1.3);
	a.push_back(2.4);
	cout<<"Object1:\n";
	a.show_sllist(a.head);
	//my_list<double> b(a);
	//cout<<"Object2:\n";
	//b.show_sllist();
	//cout<<endl;

how do i do that? and their is still something wrong with the code. :(.

that answer was for your last post before you edited that.

Write a third function without any argument which calls your recursive function inside it passing the head.
Call this third function from main().

my teacher doesn't want us to do that. He only wants one function to do all of it. No helper functions.

This is what he wants me to do.

Consider a singly-linked list sequence container of data items of type DT (named template class my_list). The
operations should include constructors, copy constructor, destructor, overloaded assignment operator (=), size,
push_back, pop_back, push_front, pop_front, (recursive) reverse and (recursive) show_sllist.

there is no way other than that or making the head public.

U can write the third function with the same name without having any parameters.

that's what i thought. Its crazy i don't think it is possible without helper functions and you probably want to keep head private.

offcourse U shouldn't make head public because its of no meaning to others and it should not get modified from outside the class.
