Write a C++ Program that can be used to sort, search and reporta database of personal contacts, phone numbers, birth day, andaddress. The birth day should be type Date (a struct with month asstring, day and year as integers). All the input data are saved ina file. The output file should have the sorted data based on thelast names. Also, search with a birthday month, and should reportall those persons name and birthdays whose birthday is in thatmonth.
Use functional decomposition to solve the problem. Generate Datafile of at least 20 records to test your code.
The program must use functions, structs, and arrays.
First split the program into several parts:
1. Define three structs called Address, Date and Record asbelow:
Date bday; // Dateitself is a struct as defined above;
Main (You have to change the order to make it to work, here onlyimportant steps are provided)
Must declare an array of type Record, declare itdynamically.
Declare N (total number of records)
Use file input option to read all the records from an input filewhere all the data are stored.
Now declare a variable called option, and get a value for optionusing cin statement. Display a menu like the below:
To sort the records: Option is 1
To search with a search criterion: Option is 2
If option = 1, then do the following:
Declare SortOption as integer
Enter 1 to sort using first name
Enter 2 to sort using last name
Enter 3 to sort using birth month
Prompt the user to enter sort option
Get a value for sortOption using cinstatement
Call the function Sort that takes threeinputs: record array of type Record, N, and
Call Display function to display allthe records after sorting. Display function displays the records insorted order as well as put the sorted list in an output file.
If option = 2, then
Declare a variable called birthMonth as typeinteger
Prompt the user to enter a month
Get value for birthMonth using cin statement
Call the function Search that takes the recordarray, number of records (N) and birthMonth as inputs and willdisplay only those persons name, their birthdate and phone numberwhose birthdays are falling in that month.
Function Sort will sort all the records based on the criterionselected.
Function Search will search with birthMonth, and displaycorresponding records.
Function Display will display all the records
PROJECT must include (i) Source code (.cpp) withcomments added. Comments must be sufficient to explain yourprogram. About the two functions take help fromblackboard.
(ii) A flow chart explaining the details.
(iii) Result files
iv) Report (a word document)
