Note: This project requires C++11 support. The eclipse starter project has this
As described in class you are going to model a public library using the starter project
located on the course projects page.
Linux 18.04 with the GNU toolchain.
fileIO.cpp and library.cpp
fileIO.h and library.h define and describe multiple functions. Please provide
definitions for these functions in fileIO.cpp and library.cpp.
Please note, you are required to use vectors to hold the book and patron objects
described in datastructures.h. These vectors should be declared and used in
You will find file Model_A_Library.cpp in the src folder. This file serves as a tester
for fileIO.cpp and library.cpp.
Note the BOOKFILE and PATRONFILE constants. These are the names of the files
where you should serialize books and patrons. BOOKFILE_EMPTY and
PATRONFILE_EMPTY are empty files. Initial versions of these files can be found
in the dont_alter_these_files directory. The function reset_books_patrons() in
Model_A_Library.cpp uses these initial versions to reset the files used for fileIO
testing in testfileIO() to a known state for each run of the program.
As long as you attempt the project:
5% – correctly submit project
95% – as listed in console when project is executed
To Turn In
Please turn in only the following files. Please do not zip them together.
I will embed them in my project for testing. This also means that I will not see any
changes you make to any files except for those 2.
