[C++ Friendship - Indeed what's it ...?]
A quick review of fundamentals of C with an prospective view of implementation in daily day to day life.

C++ Friendship - Indeed what's it...?
A few days back I was thinking, what is Friendship and who is the Friend Indeed. I was really a bit puzzled about the real definition and the practical implementation of Friendship in our Daily life. Trust me :) this is quite dangerous word for me and if I will be bit specific then, I neverever understand the meaning and sense, when a prefix added with this dangerous word and it becomes "Healthy Friendship" haa haa haa :). Most of the time I had seen gals using it ... :) I thought to look for the antonyms of "Healthy Friendship", because sometimes antonyms give a hazy sense to understand the actual word. So, i surfed hard around all big search engine as Google, Bing and Alta-Vista for "Unhealthy Friendship" but as the result, completely failed ... :( . Then after all when every door i knocked didn't open ... :), then I came to my dearest C++ and felt the actual implementation of word "Friend" with complete sense. What we call friend in our life is not the actual sense of Friend, because Friend has access to all the Private things/matters or hasn't any restriction and I am dead sure there is no-one who share their all private stuff/matters with any single one throughout life. ohhhooo hooo hooo :) Here I am talking about singles as i don't have any experience of doubles or about further steps of life. Before commenting here or blaming me wrong, think a minute and then decide. What ... Parents ...(***knows everything just till your school days), then What ... College time fiends ...(***common it's teen age yaar haaa :) haa :), and every one among us knows each other well ... ;) ), then comes ... Office Colleges ... (***ask them, if they have free time after being jealous ... ?). But after everything there is a relationship which can be said as Friendship, if and only if they are ideal. That's we are going to consider as my example. Let's See .... (of-course copy-past of snippet will work this time) ... Friend Functions (syntax C++) //____Class as a Lady class Gal { private: std::string str_Nam_mood; public: Gal(); virtual ~Gal(); void disp(); //Friend - Function to access Private Members

C++ Friendship - Indeed what's it...?
friend void my_Guy(Gal &my_friend, std::string str_what_happn); }; Here in our class "Gal" has a friend as function, :) named as my_Guy(,). Whenever he meets the gal and when she became sad, he changes her mood ... ;) (***execute this if you want to see how ?) Gal::Gal(): //Constructor str_Nam_mood("I not feeling good :("){} Gal::~Gal(){} //Destructor

void Gal::disp() //Member Function definition { printf("\n%s\n", str_Nam_mood.c_str()); } Here our dear friend my_Guy(,) function changing the mood of his Gal ... ;). As conceptual point of view function has the access to private members of class and It can't be said as the member function, because friend function can't be accessed by scoperesolution, dot or arrow operators with class. void my_Guy(Gal &my_friend, std::string str_what_happn) //Friend Function Definition { my_friend.str_Nam_mood = str_what_happn; } Let's have main function regarding this Gal class. int main() { Gal aGal; aGal.disp(); my_Guy(aGal, "Have some Ferrero Rocher and Let's go Agra to see Taj!"); aGal.disp(); } //****

C++ Friendship - Indeed what's it...?
Friend Class (syntax C++) Here for explaining friend-class, Yes I am going to take help from previous example with some addition. So, there will be a forward declaration of a class who is the friend of our previous class as; class Guy; Then a bit change in Gal class as; //____Class as a Lady class Gal { friend class Guy; //friend class as a Soulmate private: std::string str_Nam_mood; public: Gal(); virtual ~Gal(); void disp(); }; Gal::Gal(): //Constructor str_Nam_mood("I not feeling good :(") {} Gal::~Gal() {} //Destructor

void Gal::disp() { printf("\n%s\n", str_Nam_mood.c_str()); } Let's see how this class takes care of his friend who has given him complete access. He feels all the happiness that the Gal - class can imagine ... :) //___Class as a Man class Guy { public: Guy(); virtual ~Guy(); void please_change_ur_mood(Gal &dear_friend, std::string outing); }; Guy::Guy()

{} Guy::~Guy() {} //Destructor

void Guy::please_change_ur_mood(Gal &dear_friend, std::string str_what_happn) { dear_friend.str_Nam_mood = str_what_happn; } Now main() playing as the role of life and have a definition as, int main() { Gal aGal; aGal.disp(); Guy aGuy; aGuy.please_change_ur_mood(aGal, "Let's marry again and We will visit to Rome, this time!"); aGal.disp(); return 0; } Now that's a friend having complete trust and in-dependency with all the prospective views of respect and so, ... :) ... I LOVE IT ... :) haaa haa haaa :). Hmmm :) as per principle's of the concept, we need to notice a few points as; Friendship is not mutual unless explicitly specified. (i.e. If you don’t introduce her/him to your friends, then she/he is just stranger for them and I remember a song "Don't talk to the Strangers ... Don't talk the Strangers ... Strangers Strangers" ... :) ) Friendship is not inherited. So, Inheritance stands outside here ... :) Friendship is not transitive. (It's not mandatory that, your friend will has to be a friend of your mate.) That's why I like C++. :) Ok so I don't think, It's needed to say It's completely my Prospective view to the concept which may vary from you. So don't be personal, enjoy it ... at least try ... :) Same as always take care in someone's style not mine, i used say catch you again :)
