missak boyajian asked:

Open original thread
Hey.When I do this:
char *suit = "Hearts"; cout<<*suit; it prints Hearts;

But in this case: It is only printing "m". WHY?
#include "stdafx.h"
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
class yup{
	yup(char *);
	void print();
	char *name;
yup::yup(char *x)
	name = x;
void yup::print()
int _tmain(int argc, _TCHAR* argv[])
	yup t("missak");
	return 0;
