Define a class

Declare a class named Greeter that takes a string on creation and greets using this string if you call the "greet" method.
cpp
class Greeter
{
public:
Greeter(const std::string& whom);
void greet() const;

private:
std::string whom;
};

int main()
{
Greeter* gp = new Greeter("world");
gp->greet();
delete gp;
}

Greeter::Greeter(const std::string& whom) : whom(whom) {}

void Greeter::greet() const
{
std::cout << "Hello, " << whom << std::endl;
}
public ref class Greeter
{
public:
Greeter(String^ whom);
void greet();

private:
initonly String^ whom;
};

int main()
{
(gcnew Greeter(L"world"))->greet();
}

Greeter::Greeter(String^ whom) : whom(whom) {}

void Greeter::greet()
{
Console::WriteLine(L"Hello, {0}", whom);
}

Instantiate object with mutable state

Reimplement the Greeter class so that the 'whom' property or data member remains private but is mutable, and is provided with getter and setter methods. Invoke the setter to change the greetee, invoke 'greet', then use the getter in displaying the line, "I have just greeted {whom}.".

For example, if the greetee is changed to 'Tommy' using the setter, the 'greet' method would display:

Hello, Tommy!

The getter would then be used to display the line:

I have just greeted Tommy.
cpp
#include <iostream>

using namespace std;

class Greeter {
string whom_;

public:
Greeter(const string &whom) : whom_(whom) {}

string get_whom() const {
return whom_;
}

void set_whom(const string &whom) {
whom_ = whom;
}

void greet() const {
cout << "Hello " << whom_ << "!" << endl;
}
};

int main()
{
Greeter greeter("world");
greeter.greet();
greeter.set_whom("Tommy");
greeter.greet();
cout << "I have just greeted " + greeter.get_whom() << "." << endl;
}

Implement Inheritance Heirarchy

Implement a Shape abstract class which will form the base of an inheritance hierarchy that models 2D geometric shapes. It will have:

* A non-mutable 'name' property or data member set by derived or descendant classes at construction time
* A 'area' method intended to be overridden by derived or descendant classes ( double precision floating point return value)
* A 'print' method (also for overriding) will display the shape's name, area, and all shape-specific values

Two derived or descendant classes will be created:
* Circle    -> Constructor requires a '
radius' argument, and a 'circumference' method to be implemented  
* Rectangle -> Constructor requires '
length' and 'breadth' arguments, and a 'perimeter' method to be implemented 

Instantiate an object of each class, and invoke each objects '
print' method to show relevant details.
cpp
#include <string>
#include <iostream>

using namespace std;

static const double PI = 3.141592;

class Shape {
protected:
string name_;
public:
Shape(const string& name) : name_(name) { }
virtual double area() const = 0;
virtual void print() const = 0;
};

class Circle : public Shape {
double radius_;
public:
Circle(double radius) : Shape("circle"), radius_(radius) { }
double area() const {
return PI * radius_ * radius_;
}
void print() const {
cout << "A " << name_ << " with radius " << radius_ << ", area "
<< area() << " and circumference " << circumference() << "."
<< endl;
}
double circumference() const {
return 2 * PI * radius_;
}
};

class Rectangle : public Shape {
double length_;
double breadth_;
public:
Rectangle(double length, double breadth) :
Shape("rectangle"), length_(length), breadth_(breadth) { }
double area() const {
return length_ * breadth_;
}
void print() const {
cout << "A " << name_ << " with length " << length_ << ", breadth "
<< breadth_ << ", area " << area() << " and perimeter "
<< perimeter() << "." << endl;
}
double perimeter() const {
return 2 * length_ + 2 * breadth_;
}
};

int main(int argc, char *argv[])
{
Circle circle(4);
circle.print();
Rectangle rectangle(2, 5.5);
rectangle.print();
}

Implement and use an Interface

Create a Serializable interface consisting of 'save' and 'restore' methods, each of which:

* Accept a stream or handle or descriptor argument for the source or destination
* Save to destination or restore from source the properties or data members of the implementing class (restrict yourself to the primitive types 'int' and 'string')

Next, create a Person class which has 'name' and 'age' properties or data members and implements this interface. Instantiate a Person object, save it to a serial stream, and instantiate a new Person object by restoring it from the serial stream.
cpp
struct person
{
person(){}
person(const string &name, int age) : name_(name), age_(age) {}

string name_;
int age_;

template<typename Archive>
void serialize(Archive &ar, const unsigned int version) {
ar & name_ & age_;
}
};


int main()
{
const char *fn = "filename.txt";

person k("Ken", 38);
{
ofstream ofs(fn);
archive::text_oarchive oa(ofs);
oa << k;
}

person restored_person;
{
ifstream ifs(fn);
archive::text_iarchive ia(ifs);
ia >> restored_person;
}

cout << "Name : " << restored_person.name_ << endl
<< "Age : " << restored_person.age_ << endl;
}
