Is it possible? How do I do it? I need a function to return the players name, so I have this as the prototype:

string getPlayerName();

And this as the function:

string mainFunctions::getPlayerName(){
    return playerName;

But I get an error saying that the function called 'string' doesn't have a return type...

I have #included <string> in the header and cpp files.
