    Default CREATING NESTED CLASSES

    i have decided to create three classes, branch_off, employee, and head_off to manage the details of the employees as required by the company.i want to design these classes to ensure that employee class is accessed only by branch_off and not by head_off? help me provide the required code for it.

    i have tried it by making the Employee the superclass, and their members are protected. With the branch_off i extended the functionality of the employee class which is inheritance then the last class which is the head_off is left out.

    include all classes in the same body
    If by "body" you mean source file. A source file can contain many class definitions. Only one of the classes can be public and the filename should match the name of the public class.
