Candy Machine Class Specifications

a) The c.m. class stocks and sells four items: chips, jawbreakers, cookies,
chewing gum. c.m. class must store info about
each of these. This includes the quantity on
hand and the price of each type of item. In addition, a password is stored in order for the owner to gain special access to the machine.

b) c.m. class keeps track of the
money collected.

c) When a c.m object is initialized for the first time, the quantities for each item are to be set at 50, there is no money in the machine, there are no sales that have been made, and the password is set to “password”. After the first run of a
c.m. object, the data for the quantity of each item, the amount of money on hand and the current password will be read from a file
called “pa8.dat”.

d) 20 units is the max storage available for
the candy machine for an item.

e) When a c.m. object passes from scope or the program ends, the data stored in the object is written to a file called “pa8.dat”.

f) Each item costs .50

g) the c.m. class must also have
member functions to output a menu of available items, the cost of the items, record the transactions, accept the users money and give change.
The menu function can't receive any input nor call any other functions.
The function that accepts user choices can't perform any processing but may call other member functions to do so.

h) There must be an unlisted choice on the menu that the owner of the c.m. object can access that will return the amount of money in the system if the user inputs a specified password. There must also be a means of setting this password separate from constructors. All constructors should set the password to “password” initially. The user
should only be able to change the password if the password is known.

i) There must be an unlisted choice on the menu that allows the owner of the c.m. object to restock the machine. When a machine is restocked, items are set to the maximum allowed and all money
is removed from the machine. The password must be entered in order to be able to open the machine and restock it.

j) must be an unlisted choice on the menu that allows the owner to shut machine down. the member function that receives the user's choice must return a value indicating that it is time to shut down. the password must be entered to turn it off.

k) c.m object can't sell items that are out of stock
