I need help. Here is the homework problem:

Write the definitions of the functions to implement the operators defined for the class dateType.

Here's my code:

Header:

#ifndef dateSType_H
#define dateSType_H
//dateType name changed to dateSType

class dateSType
{
public:
//     ************  Mutators follow ************
void setMM(int month);
      //Function to set the month.
      //The data  members dMonth is set 
      //according to the parameters.
      //Postcondition: dMonth = month; 
      // default month = 01

void setDD( int day );
//Function to set the month.
      //The data  members dDay is set 
      //according to the parameters.
      //Postcondition: dDay = day; 
      // default day = 01

void setYY( int year);
//Function to set the month.
      //The data  members dYear is set 
      //according to the parameters.
      //Postcondition: dYear = year; 
      // default day = 1900


    void setDate(int month, int day, int year);
      //Function to set the date.
      //The data  members dMonth, dDay, and dYear are set 
      //according to the parameters.
      //Postcondition: dMonth = month; dDay = day;
      //               dYear = year  default 1900
      // default month = 01

    //int getDay() const;
      //Function to return the day.
	  //Postcondition: The value of dDay is returned.

    //int getMonth() const;
      //Function to return the month.  
	  //Postcondition: The value of dMonth is returned.

    //int getYear() const;
      //Function to return the year.     
	  //Postcondition: The value of dYear is returned.

    void printDate() const;
      //Function to output the date in the form mm-dd-yyyy.

     dateSType();

     //dateSType(int month = 1, int day = 1, int year = 1900);
      //Constructor to set the date (Danger constructor here) #####
      //The data  members dMonth, dDay, and dYear are set 
      //according to the parameters.
      //Postcondition: dMonth = month; dDay = day; dYear = year
      //               
      //If no values are specified, the default values are 
      //used to initialize the data members.

private:
    int dMonth;      //variable to store the month
    int dDay;        //variable to store the day
    int dYear;       //variable to store the year
};

#endif

Implementation File:

dateSType::dateSType() { } 
//default constructor


  dateSType::dateSType(int, int, int) { } 
//construct with parms

 dateSType::~dateSType() {}                     //destructor

void dateSType::setDate(int month, int day, int year)
{
dMonth = month;
dDay = day;
dYear = year;
}

void setMM(int month)
{
	if ((month > 0 ) && (month < 13))
         dMonth = month; //valid month
	else 
        dMonth = 1;     //invalid month use default
}

Here are my errors:

Sorry for the long post and thanks in advance for the help.

you forgot to include the header file in the *.cpp file. You may also need other header files too, such as iostream, fstream, string, etc. depending on your code.

#include "dateSType.h"
// rest of cpp code here

besides, u can write a test file to implement the functions one by one..... thus, u can understand which function is not working actually..... good luck!
