Struct Villian

Please add comments using //.

Suppose I have declared the following struct:

struct Villian {
int wit;
int stealth;
int slainCount;
int slainCap;
string* victimsSlain;
};

1. Declare a new Villian called sharpay who has a wit of 24, a stealth of 16, and who has currently claimed three victims: Chad, Troy, and Gabriella. Give sharpay an initial capacity to vanquish 10 victims.

2. Write a function called copyVillian that takes two Villian parameters, one called orig and the other called copycat, and makes copycat a deep copy of orig. Hint: a "deep copy" is one that would allow copy to exist completely separately from orig. In other words, they will not share any memory locations.

Solution Preview

As nothing specifically is mentioned about the sharpay variable declaration and the type of copyVillian function parameters, this solution declares sharpay as an initialized variable and copyVillian function parameters are considered as pointer types.

struct Villian {
int wit;
int stealth;
int slainCount;
int slainCap;
string* victimsSlain;
};

1.

string sharpayVictims[] = {"Chad", "Troy", "Gabriella"};

// Following statement declares a new Villian called sharpay who has a wit of
// 24, a stealth of 16, ...

Solution Summary

As nothing specifically is mentioned about the sharpay variable declaration and the type of copyVillian function parameters, this solution declares sharpay as an initialized variable and copyVillian function parameters are considered as pointer types.
