Hi,

I am going to be attending university next year on a coding course, I am currently working through an exercise in the Deitel book How To Program and I have encountered some errors in my program. Any help would be much appreciated.

Bob

Here is my code

cube.h

#include "cube.h"

#include <iostream>
using std::cout;

//Write the constructor for Cube class
 
Cube::Cube(double s, double x, double y) 
   : ThreeDimensionalShape( x, y) { sideLength = s > 0 ? s : 0; }

double Cube::area() const { return 6 * sideLength * sideLength; }

double Cube::volume() const
   { return sideLength * sideLength * sideLength; }

double Cube::getSideLength() const { return sideLength; }

void Cube::print() const
{
   cout << "Cube with side length " << sideLength << "; center at ("
        << xCenter << ", " << yCenter << ");\narea of "
        << area() << "; volume of " << volume() << '\n';
}

shape.h

#ifndef SHAPE_H
#define SHAPE_H

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

   friend ostream & operator<<( ostream &, Shape & );
public:
   Shape( double = 0, double = 0 );
   double getCenterX() const;
   double getCenterY() const;

   //Write virtual pure print function
 
virtual void print() const = 0; 
 
protected:
   double xCenter;
   double yCenter;
};

#endif

square.h

#ifndef SQUARE_H
#define SQUARE_H

#include "twodim.h"

// write statement for square public inheritance from 2-dimensional class
 class Square : public TwoDimensionalShape {

    
public:
   Square( double = 0, double = 0, double = 0 );
   double getSideLength() const;
   double area() const;
   void print() const;
private:
   double sideLength;
};

#endif

public:

          // Write the constructor for 3-dimensional shape 
ThreeDimensionalShape( double = 0, double = 0);
      
      // declare a pure virtual member function area
 
virtual double area() const = 0; 

      // declare a pure virtual member function volume

Please post the nature of your errors ( syntax, logical, segfault, etc ) as well as your compiler/application output.

error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol "public: __thiscall TwoDimensionalShape::TwoDimensionalShape(double,double)"

error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol "public: __thiscall ThreeDimensionalShape::ThreeDimensionalShape(double,double)"

Did you define them? Also why does ThreeDimensionalShape only store 2
values. Also there is some serious problems with your inheritance diagram.
Take another look at the shape class. Look at what it stores. Look at
what you need for each class.
