Overview Using Classes
Implementation (20 points)
Implement a simple automated bank registry system. The implementation will include several
attributes related to a transaction, and the data will be managed in a global linked list within
memory. The program must use the “list” API in the C++ standard template library. All of the
attributes associated with each transaction will be stored as a single object within a global linked
list data structure. The program must implement at least one class that will hold the following
transId — An integer for the transaction ID that consists of a number·
starting at 1000 for the first transaction in the linked list and
automatically incremented by 1 for each subsequent transaction
entered into the linked list. The user will not enter this number.
date — A string for the date of the transaction. The date must be in the·
form mm/dd/yyyy. The program must re-prompt the user to reenter
the date if it is not a valid form.
description — A string variable to indicate the description of the transaction·
(spaces between words must be allowed).
payment — A double variable to indicate a transaction payment or deduction·
from the account. A value of 0 if the transaction is not a payment.
deposit — A double variable to indicate a transaction deposit or addition to·
the account. A value of 0 if the transaction is not a deposit.
Provide the appropriate accessor methods to set and get the data for each of these class variables.
For example setDate(string date) and getDate(). In addition, the main program must provide
the following functionality:
1. When the program is first started, it must read a data file called registry.dat. The
program should not prompt the user for the name of the data file. If the file exists, the
program will load the data for each transaction into the global linked list data structure.
If the file does not exist, the program will start with an empty linked list.
2. The program should provide a simple text-based user interface similar to the Book
Inventory example that manages the all of the transactions within the global linked list.
Each transaction must be placed in this global linked list as an object that holds all of
the information associated with the given transaction. The user interface will allow the
user to do the following:
(a) Display Registry – displays all of the transactions in the global linked list. This
feature will display all of the fields associated with the each transaction. In
addition it must also print the total number of transactions, the total amount in
payments, the total amount deposits, and the total balance, which can be
calculated as follows:
