Hi! Can anyone please tell me where my mistake in this is?
The information from the list has to be transferred to the tree. But only the first element is copied.

#include<iostream>
#include<string>

using namespace std;

struct Person{
       char first[30], last[30];
       };

            };

       char adr[30]; Person name[30]; int numPpl; aTree *adrL, *adrR;
            };

     cin >> ch;
     while (ch == 'y') 
     {

      p = new aList;
      cout << "Address: ";
      cin >> p->adr;
      cout << "Number of inhabitants: ";
      cin >> p->numPpl;     
      for (int i=0; i<p->numPpl; i++, j++)
      {

There are a couple of problems....I will answer this one....look at the function add_to_BST....ask yourself this question "What happens after you process the first list item?" That is, what happens after that? Don't you want to invoke the same function add_to_BST(n, p->next) only in the case that p->next is NOT NULL.

I got this to work (required slight change to the other two calls in the else part ...are you sure you don't want to send p instead of p->next.

Are the nodes supposed to be in some order?

I just want to add one note: I would not build a tree and traverse the list in one function...I would create a loop that takes the next item in the list to process and send it to "add to tree" function.

Thank you for the fast response. It's helpful I think now I will be able to make it work. I knew it was something simple that I'm missing.

Also they are in one function because the professor wants it like that.
