Homework 3 Solution Problem 1 Problem 3 Problem 2 Problem 4 Problem 1: Since all Creatures have a name, and since the way you find out the name is going to be the same for all kinds of creatures, the name should be a data member of Creature, and the function to retrieve it need not be virtual. The different kinds of creatures may have different ways of moving, and may or may not be mortal, so these functions should be virtual. Since most creatures are mortal, it's convenient to have Creature::mortal have an implementation (that returns true) that derived classes may inherit if they wish. There is no reasonable default behavior for move, so this should be pure virtual. Observe how the constructors for the derived classes pass the name to the Creature constructor. Examine Giant's constructor especially. // ======================================= Creature class Creature { public: Creature(string nm); string name() const; virtual string move() const = 0; virtual bool mortal() const; virtual ~Creature() {} private: string m_name; }; Creature::Creature(string nm) : m_name(nm) {} string Creature::name() const { return m_name; } bool Creature::mortal() const { return true; } // ======================================= Phoenix class Phoenix : public Creature { public: Phoenix(string nm); virtual string move() const; virtual bool mortal() const; virtual ~Phoenix(); };
